Boxes

Candle Box

A wooden or paper box.
sandpaper (if wooden)
wood burning tool (if wanted)
markers (not children's washable markers)
Paints and brushes
acrylic spray
Paper

Cover area with paper (newspaper, wax paper or whatever you want) Decide what you want to use your candle box for. Love, job, health, or protection. Then pick the patterns that supply they energy you want for the box. Example if for love you would decorate with hearts. Outline and use burning tool if wanted. Or you can paint some designs on the box. If you are unsure of your art abbilities; make simple patterns. Or you may use decopodge to decorate the box. (Pictures cut outs can be used glued to the box in a crazy quilt type pattern.) Allow the box to dry. Test the markers to see if the spray will make them run (don't use children's washable markers). You can decorte the box with markers if you want. This is all up to you!
Seal the designs with a sealing spray; art and crafts stores have many different type of acrylic sealers. Follow directions carefully. Use carefully in a open area. Please! Add candles remember the colors to symbolize the energy you want.

Best when enpower and blessed with the full moon.

Wish Box

A wooden or paper box.

Decorte your box as you would the candle box. Using markers, wood burning tool, paints or whatever you want. Decorate the box in symbol. Place a pyramid on top of box. Place a piece of paper that you have writen your wish on (remember not to cause harm...) in the box.

Money Box

A wooden or paper box.
sandpaper (if wooden)
wood burning tool (if wanted)
markers (not children's washable markers)
green paint and brushes
acrylic spray
Paper
Money beads or charms
sea shells
or other things that where once used like money

Make the same as all the boxes. However paint it green and decorate with sea shells, anything that once was used as money and charms of money. Then anytime you can place some money in the box. This will help your money *grow*. I believe this is a Asian belief.... that it also must be a wooden box to work the best.
