Altered Box

I am in love, with altered art projects!  I can't seem to go past a box and not think of what I can do to alter it with paper, flowers, stamps, color anything.  This box is no different.  It started out as a plain box sitting on a shelf in a thrift store and when I saw it, I thought it would make a great keepsake box.. and it just screamed vintage... so that's what I did...

Ciao Bella Paper
Paper Flowers
Crocheted flower leaves

 I love how it turned out.. It's going to be heading to a friend of mine who has said repeatedly that she would love to have an altered box... I heard you, LOL!

Thanks for stopping by... Leave a little blog lovin... I love comments... :-)

  1. Very nice! I definitely look at everything differently too! LOL!! It's especially gratifying when you can recycle/repurpose something. I love thrift stores too! Ahh so many things to alter so little time! Thanks for joining us this week at Jackson's Digital Expressions! We have more altered challenges scheduled for the future...hope to see you then!
