What a transformation. It started out as a humble mickey mouse gumball machine ($10.00 from Big W) and is now a stunning photo frame and money box! If only a personal make-over was this easy. ;)
I started by removing poor old Minnie and applying a liberal amount of texture paste over which I went crazy with snow 'in a can'. Gotta love an instant snow drift. It has a really interesting texture to it.
I popped a little photo frame inside it - with some presents topped with my2angels charms and a Christmas Tree made from tinsel (see details further down).
Then I went made with white flowers and silver glitter ribbon ...
Check out the bird's eye view!
To make an easy Christmas tree like the one inside the gumball machine (sorry you probably can't see it very well, it's difficult to photograph through the plastic) - just follow the instructions ...
Cut a piece of pretty tinsel.
Give it a haircut to shape ...
and top with a star charm ... too easy!
So - who is going to buy themselves a gumball machine and do their own makeover?
