Altered box tutorial....

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.

Finished product!
