1st July 2010

Its time for a new project over at Vanilla Sugar - this month we're looking at altered jars/tins/boxes...

Here is my altered box:-




The base is a small wooden box that I picked up in our local QD store - it was a nest of three boxes - so cheap!! I painted the base with acryllic and then dry brushed it. The lock was also painted then had inka gold added to age it.

The top has a metal "piece" on it and some grungepaper embellishments, little metal corners finished it all off.

Around the top of the lid and along the bottom of the box was added Tim Holtz tissue paper tape.

Pop on over to the Vanilla Sugar blog and see the other gorgeous box creations.
