Darby Smart March 2014 Box "Wood Burining"

Since Project DIY is no longer going to be creating boxes. I started to look into other craft themed subscription boxes. There are a few options out there but none that really caught my eye. I randomly stumbled upon and I am glad I did. The website sells craft sets, as well as, crafting supplies; you can also purchase a monthly DIY subscription box from them. Darby Smart keeps the theme of the box secret until the boxes ship. From what I can tell the project options are endless, the month may have jewelry, accessories, something for your home, the DIY list goes on and on.

The DIY project for the month of March was a "Wood Burned Cutting Board." This was such a new territory for me. I had never used a wood burner before and I love that the gave one to everyone who subscribed this month. The cutting boards that were included were sturdy yet very small. I plan to use mine as a cheeseboard.

The supplies included:
  • Creative Woodburner Value Pen, including stand and four tips
  • 2 Bamboo Cutting Boards
  • 6 x 6 Mini Birds Stencil
  • 1 piece of scrap wood for practice
  • Tulip Brand, Beads in a Bottle (green)
Here is my completed project. I only burned one of my boards since I'm still thinking about a design for the second one. It took a little bit of practice but I finally managed to get the Woodburner to do what I wanted.
Overall this was a pretty fun box and I don't think I would have ever done a project like this on my own. I love the way my board turned out. My sister has been hinting that she would like me to design the second board for her. :)
