wood burned boxes


By now you must know that I love wood burning and since it's the holidays I wanted to come up with a way incorporate wood burning into a simple but beautiful gift idea.

After finding some really affordable balsa wood boxes at my local craft store I used my wood burning tool to burn designs into them. 

I filled the entire surface with pattern.

While back I dedicated a post to wood burning tips and techniques- you can read about it HERE 


The result is a beautiful little box that can be a gift or even used as gift wrapping!



Looking for more wood burning projects or gift ideas? Check out some of my other posts:



P.S. I sold out of all my hand carved stamp sets in 1 day so I carved up one more batch for the holidays. Get em' while you can HERE

Alisa your wood burning boxes are so cute!

I just tried buying your hand carved stamp sets but at checkout it said you don't ship to Canada! So disappointing! :(

My husband is a wiz with wood, especially turning and sometimes makes boxes. But- he also does woodburning, he calls them burnt stick etchings, but I can see how this might give him a bitof inspiration! thanks

Hello Alisa!
Those boxes are so stunning beautiful. I just started an own wood burning project. But I'm still far away from your talent :D
Maybe you habe some tips for me for improvement? http://www.kathleen-palnau.de/201501/erster-versuch-mit-dem-brennkolben-individuelle-brettchen-fuer-mama-papa/
