Review: Decotime Decorate your own box of Action
Recently I posted on my blog a shopping log with lots of craft supplies from Action and promised to make reviews. Today my first review of the package: Decorate your own box, in my case a nice house. Curious about my experiences? Then read on :-).
I came across the box at Action and couldn't pass it up. Due to moving, I now have many houses in the house as decoration, such as concrete houses and candles in the shape of houses :-). The craft kit cost €1.99.
I just said manual, but now that I have looked more closely, there are actually only 4 steps that are described. Unfortunately, I found the first step a bit unclear, so I made my own plan :-). I already knew the principle from a previous one birdhouse from the Action. This one was made of wood and this one was made of cardboard.
First I cut all the paper to size. There is enough paper so you can vary. I have chosen to follow the example. This is what my cut pieces of paper looked like.
After cutting I was able to stick the paper on the box. Just like the birdhouse, this box also contains thin paper. The instructions for use state how to use glue. I recommend using spray adhesive. This can also be purchased at Action. This prevents the paper from getting too wet and makes it easy to stick. Another advantage of spray glue: if it is not exactly right, you can carefully loosen the paper and stick it again. Do not use too much spray adhesive!
And then the fun part is decorating! Very nice those buttons, pearls, rope, pictures and ribbons that came with it. I looked at the example again. Making it was very easy. Only the bow was a little more difficult. There was only ribbon so you had to tie the bow yourself. You can see how I did this in a video on my blog :-).
The end result
- Time: About 1.5 hours
- Difficulty: 1 star
- Final grade: 9
There is actually only one conclusion for me, super fun! I really enjoyed making the house and I am happy with the result. I would really recommend it to anyone who loves crafting!
