Happy Saturday y'all. I have to go grocery shopping, but first I wanted to post this. I tried my hand at altering a box. I have never tried this before and I think it turned out OK. For my first try anyway. I have been watching some of the videos on YouTube and am totally amazed at the boxes that those ladies alter. WOWZA!!
I started by painting the box that I bought at AC Moore for $1 with Eggshell White paint that I had in my stash from when I was painting ceramics. I let it dry and added some Crackle Medium. I then used a piece of DP from DCWC that has a light burgundy flower pattern. I used Modge Podge, but it bubbled some and I don't like the way you can see the bubbles in the paper. I inked all the edges of the papers in Vintage Photo DI before adhering them. I then took a string of flat back Ivory Pearls and hot glued them around the bottom of the box. Then came the fun part. I added an Ivory Pearl Swirl to the top and began adding roses. The roses are from Prima and I just kept adding them until I liked the effect. I also added one to the bottom of the box. To fill in the hollow spots, I added some little fabric roses that I bought at AC Moore.
I also added a bottom paper to the inside of the box and a top paper to the inside. And that, my friends, finished up my first attempt at altering a box. I hope you like it.
Thanks so much for stopping by on this beautiful Saturday. It's supposed to be about 65 degrees today so I am doing the happy dance. God bless y'all and have a wonderful day.
