I started out with a hexagon shaped box. I used inexpensive acrylic white paint – just the basic bottles you can get from any craft store.
The paint is pretty thin, so you need at least two coats in order to get decent coverage. For the inside, I left it rough, but the outside I sanded down after the first two coats and added a few more before sanding it smooth again. It’s not perfect and glossy, but it works for my purposes.
For the hexagon box I wrapped a spare piece of light aqua ribbon around the edge of the box top. Then, I started gluing the flowers I had in my storage to the top of the box. I used nori paste – or rice based glue – which I bought from amazon. It remains flexible for a good long while, which allows you to re-position things as needed.
Some of the flowers did not have any center pieces, so I added them in using E-6000 which has a much faster drying time. I used bead caps with rhinestones, and faux pearls for the centerpieces – as well as a piece of silver metallic sparkle wire. It’s easy to shape and lightweight compared to heavier jewelry wires.
There were also some blank areas where flowers wouldn’t fit. I filled those spaces up with faux stamens I got from Amazon. For the smaller gaps, I glued in some rhinestones also using E-6000. You can get E-6000 from pretty much any craft store, but often times you see it in larger tubes. Since I know that E-6000 can dry out over time, I like to buy mine in smaller tubes so that I don’t end up drying out a large tube of glue.
