After a hiatus over the Christmas period, Rhedd's Creative Spirit is back with another altered art challenge this month.
I took one of my Craft Box boxes (after emptying all the goodies out of it first, naturally) and decorated it as a gift box for my mother.
These boxes are brilliant to use in this way. They're sturdy and have a magnetic closure in the lid, so can be opened and closed easily without damaging the box.
I used a gorgeous DCWV paper pad my mum gave me some years ago. She loves the paper in the pad, and I've made her several things using it, so made this to match.
I also used several Craft Box embellishments, and made some flowers using the Tim Holtz Tattered Floral dies.
It's hard to tell from the picture, but I edged everything with my Rustoleum gold leafing pen, which adds a lovely golden shine.
This is the box before:
I very much recommend them, especially since they arrive full of gorgeous crafty goodies to use ;)
Right, that's it from me, but do head over to Rhedd's to see what my fellow teamies have put together for you, and please do come and play along!
Back in a moment with my next project...
