Here is Tusia Lech today with altered box. As a base I have used a box in a shape of beautiful flower. I covered it with Distress Paint and then I cut out flowery shape from scrapbooking paper, that was meant to be cover the lid. I stamped it with 7 Dots Studio stamps and StazOn ink. Then I glued it down and on all edges I applied Prima Chalk Ink – Old Rose.
Than I started embellishing. In my Zeus&Zoe kit
I have found beautiful, pink ribbon, that I have used to embellish the box – I placed it around the cover.
When I embellish an object, that is meant to be useful, I try to avoid too much elements – because I like when my altered objects can be easily cleaned and are easy for using. So on the top of the box I glued down using hot gun glue two wonderful, fabric flowers (fabric flowers are much more sturdy, than paper ones) and have added some metal embellishments.
My daughter felt in love with this cute box and uses it as a keepsake box.
Have a great day!
