♥ Magic of the Season...A Faux Toy Drum and Card ♥
Christmas....the most magical time of the year! Especially when there is snow on the ground. I was recently inspired to make this faux toy drum when I saw over on Two Peas someone had taken a child's toy drum and altered it. Well, I decided to make my own "toy drum" out of a simple round box. It can be purchased at Michael's for a buck or two.
I first discarded the top, which can be used for something at a later date, I'm sure! I then painted the inside of the box white and then covered the sides with some My Mind's Eye Lost and Found musical notes paper and the inside bottom of the box with some Fancy Pants Lilac House paper. Then for a few dollars at Mike's I picked up a cute little paper house which I also painted white. Then covered it in some Ice Crystals and added some pearls, snowflakes, candy canes, Melissa Frances resin frame and some ribbon to it. I then adhered it in the box with some hot glue. I also used some cotton for snow and some holiday picks as well as some more ice crystals.
I then traced the bottom of the box onto a piece of transparency paper, cut it out and then adhered it to the outer edge of the box with some hot glue.(Not too much, so you don't melt the paper.)I then inked the edges of the transparency with white ink to give a frosted look and then adding some MF rub-ons.
I then added some roping, satin ribbon, We R Memory Keepers Snowflake stamps, chipboard and resin snowflakes, trim and more candy canes to the outside of the box. And there you have a toy drum with a magical scene inside that makes a special gift for someone!
