Hi everyone, happy crafting day!! This is my favourite posting day. I just LOVE creating things and each week the project is a bit of a surprise to me. I start out with a vague idea of what I want to make and then just start!
This week I got a new set of tarot cards and decided I needed a nice box to store them in. I wanted something with a vintage or rustic style that would fit both of my decks, my book and a journal. Sadly, my book won’t fit but I will be able to add a journal.
I used one of the boxes from my Glossybox subscription, two sheets 12×12 paper, PVA glue, texture paste (recipe below), book pages, glue stick, staining ink and sponge, jute ribbon, and regular ribbon.
Texture Paste Recipe
- 6 tbsp Baby Powder
- 3 tbsp White Acrylic Paint
- 2 tbsp PVA Glue
The paste smells strongly of the baby powder so if that’s a smell you hate you could try using baking soda instead.

I hope you enjoy the project 💜 Please let me know if you decide to try it out.

Lauren and the Books has decided to host her Cosy Reading Night’s every other week while we’re all social-distancing. It’s a great idea but I doubt I will be taking part that frequently. I did join in in last Friday’s one though and had a lovely time 🙂 I made some tasty food, popped open… Read More Cosy Reading Night April 2020
