Altered Box

First off I want to say so sorry about these bad photo’s.  I have tried every which way to photograph this box and nothing is helping. The light outside is so dark due to the rain, but I do hope you can see somewhat of what I have done.


This is a wooden box I bought at Michaels a long time ago and have been working on this off and on for my granddaughter for her birthday and since it was about time for her birthday I figured I better get it done lol

I adhered some papers from MME to the box and distressed them with Walnut Ink. I then used some Crackle Paint for the top edge. This wanted to flake off so I sealed it with some sealer to keep it on. I used this cute Tilda image that was colored with my copics and some gorgeous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The ribbon is some ribbon from The Ribbon Girl and I made a double tailed bow I learnt from Becca over at Amazing Paper Grace. She is the bow queen. I added some lace that I got from Joann’s and you can see a better pic of that below in one of the pictures.



Here is a side view


And a closer picture of the top.


Here is the box opened up it has several compartments so I lifted one up so you could see .

  1. This is terrific - that bow is amazing & I love these mauves & greens. The box is such fun & I love how neatly you've got those feet & the handle combined with the papers. It's lovely & pretty. Hope you've had some time with the family over Easter.
    Much love
