Do What You Love

Today, I have another altered box to share.  The box is from AC Moore and I gave it a coat of white paint.  I then covered it in paper from Webster's Pages Hollywood Vogue line.  The only problem was I had a very difficult time getting the lid on and then it wouldn't come off easily.  I was afraid to force it and end up ripping the paper, so it is now an unusable box but makes a nice decoration.  Lace from Joann Fabrics was attached around the lid.  A Martha Stewart adhesive diecut was adhered to the top of the lid as well as buttons from Joann's.  I love the Making Memories metal tag that is on top of the buttons.  Prima flowers, Webster's sparkler button, seam binding ribbon, twine and a tag stamped with a PTI sentiment were layered together.  A little butterfly and glitter finished it off.

I used my Martha Stewart frond punch to fill in some areas on top of the box as you can see in the photo above.

I also made a matching card using the Webster paper and rose and pearl sparklers.  Flower is Prima.  Stamp is from PTI.  Double row of pearls is Recollections.

Have a wonderful weekend!  I'm off to meet some friends for lunch.  Thanks for stopping by!
