Altered Box-Vintage Style
This week has flown by! I hope you've had a creative one.
One of my most favorite things to do is alter boxes.
I start by painting the edges-which in this case end up covered pretty good. I used Tim Holtz vintage photo distress paint-it comes in a dabber bottle. Works so well to go around edges.
Since the box top covers the bottom of the box-you don't want to put designer paper on the bottom edges-the box won't shut properly. So the paper is only on the bottom
I collaged the top of the box. Ripped pieces approximately 2x2 size. Liquitex matt medium will glue is all down nicely. Then is sprayed some brown spritzer..
I had this wonderful trim from my stash. Been itching to use it! Use your hot glue gun to attach it all the way around your edges.
The pic below shows the glass feet I put on when I'm finished-use hot glue or glossy accents.
The last flower I made with lace from my stash and a vintage button.
You can find the inks, paint dabbers, lace, prima flowers, designer paper, trims, glossy accents, and many more products at our store Outlaw Women Scrapbook Emporium. The prices are 20-25% lower than retail EVERY DAY!!!!!
Have a blessed day!
