This is a little gift box that I altered.....
I'll show you the step by step process.
Ordinary little gift box
Here's the box with the lid on.
I chose this distressed paper, measured the box, and cut the paper to fit.
I covered the surface of the box with double sided tape, using my ATG gun.
Completely covered bottom portion of the box.
I distressed the edges of the box with Tim Holtz Distress Stain.
Next, I measured the top of the box, cut the paper to fit, and taped it on using the same method as the bottom portion of the box.
I used brown ribbon to trim the edge of the box.
Cutting Bling Mesh/Ribbon into strips, getting ready to decorate the outside.
Using 3-1 glue, I glued the strips to strips of paper.
Hot glued a metal Latch to the box and added some metal corners and a metal flower with a pearled center.
I glued "FEET" to the bottom of the box using pearls.
This is a custom piece for a friend's grandbaby.... it's a small little chest of drawers for storing clips and hair bands and such....
