How to make

Step-1

Draw a design on the lid of the box using a pencil, this can be as intricate or as simple as you want it to be. Once ready, plug in the pyrography tool and leave to heat up for 5-10 minutes.
Top tip! A pointed tip on the tool is great for creating finer lines with.

Step-2

Follow the outline of the design using the pyrography tool, take your time and keep an eye on how much pressure you apply as this can cause the wood to burn more or less.
Top tip! If there is still pencil marks that you can see, use a rubber to rub them out. It will be as if you never used a pencil at all!

Step-3

Once the basis of the design is done, start to add the rest of the design including personalised initials.

Paint the inside of the box using an acrylic paint and paintbrush. You could use a red or pink coloured hue in theme with Valentine’s Day or pick your loved ones favourite colour?

Step-5

Paint a first coat and leave to completely dry. You may need to do a second or third coat depending on coverage.

Step-6

All that is left to do now is fill your personalised pyrography photo box with precious memories and mementos.

Instax photographs would fit nicely into this little box. You could even create an accordion book to stick your photos onto!
