Altered Box – From Plain to Vintage

26 Nov

Hi there!

It was a plain box that I got as a free gift for buying something. I find thrills in altering items – giving them a new look.

I painted the main box with black Acrylic paint and the drawers in Gold. The main paper used is “My Mind’s Eye – Lost & Found Two – Sunshine Forever” which I adhered one side of the design to the top of box to act as the background. The other side of the paper was used to cover the sides of the box.

The rest of papers used are scraps from past projects – a good time to use up the matching ones. The final step is to dress up the box with desired embellishments.

Da Da… This is the new look – From Plain to Vintage.
