Altered box

Hello,

This ends the series of posts for today :)

Here is an altered box that I made for the ICR challenge.





So this was a perfume box that I was using to hold my quilled earrings. And now came the perfect time to upcycle it to a beautiful box.

I started with making the flowers. One of the tutorials from internet taught me to make flowers out of egg cartons, so that was it! Colored the flowers red and added a golden yellow thermocol ball for the center. Easy to make and beautiful flowers ready!



I wrapped the box with pink and teal patterned paper and added a doily to the center. I've stamped and fussy cut the leaf images. Attached the flowers and leaves, and a few pearl embellishments along with a couple of 3d stickers. I then added a sentiment tag to remind me everyday is to be enjoyed :)

Finally, finished by adding a pink satin ribbon to the side.
