Tutorial:Altered box.

First i took an empty,’crepe bandage box’,cleaned it properly(both inside and out),then i took my green pattern paper which is from Coosty Creations:Poinsettia paper pack and wrapped it all around the box..i punched out and oval shape in green card stock and used it as my stamps backing.The stamp that i used is from Lil Diva: Lil Angel and i have used Stickles glitter glue-green and yellow to cover up the edges of the stamp and have also used the yellow one to glitter the little angel’s wings.

for the lid or you can say the cap of the box,i have used a green scalloped card stock paper to cover the whole lid and then embellished it using my dark green lace which is about a half inches and glued it all over the lid.

i have embellished my box with pearls and handmade flowers and also tied a silver bell as a charm.

so friends…that it..and i hope you guys like it.

do share me with your great ideas and views!
