Marbleize with irRESISTible Pico Embellishers

irRESISTible Altered Gift Box

by Monica Edwards


I found this cute gift box in a thrift store and thought it would be a perfect gift item for a friend of mine who loves to collect boxes. The front was perfectly decorated and all it needed was a personal touch to bring out its true beauty. I went for a marbleized look using irRESISTible Pico Embellishers.

Skill: Intermediate
Time: 1 hour


Step 1

Cover all the sides of the box using patterned paper and adhesive. Also cover the wider edges (all but the filigree) of the top.


Step 2

With an irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Wedding Dress cover all the filigree areas on the top.


Step 3

With irRESISTible Pico Embellisher in Electric Blue go over the layer of Wedding Dress you just laid down. Swirl or mix it with the white to create a marbleized look.


Step 4

Add additional embellishments to finish the box off for a completed look.


  • Filigree gift box
  • Lemoncraft Forget Me Not – patterned paper
  • Beacon adhesives
  • Embellishments of choice
