I do have a altered box project today. This project was the a result of my cleaning up Christmas supplies that I didn't have time to complete projects for during the holiday. In those supplies were these boxes I'd thought to re-do for Christmas and as I didn't get the opportunity, I re-did them for Valentine Day instead. Here's the box:
It reads "Love is the master key which opens the gates of happiness". I'm not certain what I'll put on the inside yet -- maybe candy -- but whatever, I'm hoping it will be a present inside a present because I like how it turned out overall. Here's a picture of the top of the box:
Because I liked the outcome of this box so much, I decided I wanted the back to be fun and have a focal point also:
I titled it "Dressing Christmas for Valentine Day" because, as I said earlier, this was made from a box I was planning on recycling for Christmas. I had several of them:
I used a velvet/suede-type paper to cover the box; the material on the top I purchased somewhere on etsy -- it comes in a 12"x12" cut, and then I glued on a few rhinestones; on the back is a velvet ribbon bow, small ribbon flowers, and a large rhinestone; the flowers were cut from a stem of silk flowers I found in my bin; some gathered ribbon, white beaded ribbon, more rhinestones, and the acrylic word block completed the embellishments on the box. I hope you like it!!!
Well, I'm off again! I'm working on a "major" baby-shower gift which I'll share with you as soon as it's completed! Soooooo...,
Hugs, and I'll be seeing you!!!
