Molding Paste Upcycled Gift Box

Upcycling Gift Bags

I just wrote a post for the collaborative project I am part of called the Cre8ive Klatch about stamping on gift boxes. (You can find that post here.). I am actually not a fan of stamping on gift bags however. They usually have too many folds in them and are pretty difficult to get a clean stamp impression. But sometimes, you really need a gift bag makeover 😉 and that is where paint and molding paste are your friends!

I used a stencil and ran molding paste through it onto this gently used gift bag. After the paste dried I painted over the stenciled image, and wiped some of the paint off the raised design. It ended up looking like this:

Of course you could always do the same thing to a gift box:

I am working on a video to show how to use a stencil with paint and molding paste so look for that in the next few weeks! Enjoy!!
