Hellooooooooooooooo! I hope today finds you well! My mum leaves me today to fly back to Canberra, sniff sniff. I've had soooo much fun crafting with her and I hope you have enjoyed seeing our little creations.
Mum just asked me to help her set up her own blog when I go to Canberra mid January!! Woooo hoooooo!! You got her hooked, girls!!
Today I am going to share with you a first for me - I have altered a box. I will be entering this into the challenge over at Anything But A Card.
I purchased a pack of these boxes from Lincraft.
Very plain and yucky huh?
I started by painting the outside of the box and lid with a white acrylic paint. I ended up doing about 3 coats of paint. Then waited for it to dry......... snore!!
My next step was to measure up all the surfaces so I could cut out the DP I had selected. Once I had stuck it all on, I decided to add the lace and the flowers (from Inspired by Stamping). The tag is from my Four Frames stamp set and co-ordinating label punch.
Once it was all together, I sprayed it quite liberally with a Gloss Spray Sealer. I will give it another burst when the wind dies down outside, lol.
This was really fun to do and I can't wait to start making all my Christmas boxes like this!!
Thanks so much for looking xx
