Nina’s Altered Christmas Project # 6: Altered Gift Box

I got this small box for my son a while back to organize his Mushiking Game cards. But since they got so many, they didn’t fit anymore. So I sequestered the box and altered it as a Christmas gift container.

The design was multi-colored hearts and the color a bright red. I decided that they fit the colors of the season anyway but I had to tone it down a bit on top.

Nina’s Altered Christmas # 6: Altered Gift Box

The goods: old box; Pink Parts Color Kit; Wallpaper; Foreign Text; fake pearl string; ready-made flower; bells; sticker and collage sheet from Lush Kit, Maya Road bottle cap; Inkssentials Glossy Accents.

What I did: Adhere pink wallpaper on box and seal. I used Acrylex Gel but you can also use Mod Podge.  Adhere vintage pages, flower and bells with Inkssentials Glossy Accents. Fill Maya Road bottle cap with image from collage sheet in the Lush Kit and goodies from the Pink Parts Color Kit. Adhere to box with Inkssentials Glossy Accents but insert the sticker from the sticker sheet (stick on cardstock first to give it some weight) from the Lush Kit.  As a finishing touch, adhered fake pearl string around edges of box.

Do you have stuff lying around the box, sad and with no purpose? Infuse them with new life and pay it forward.
