Recently, I tried my hand at altering a small plastic tool box (measuring about 5x7 inches) for a swap. I must admit I was a bit intimidated by it; however, I gave it a whirl! Here it is.
First, I gave the lid a coat of off-white paint and crackle paste. After it dried, I couldn't see any crackling. On to Plan B which was to cover the lid in a lacy fabric. I then went through my stash and pulled out various trims, appliques, flowers, etc. The flower to the left of the beige center flower was made by me using some trim and a pretty pearl cluster for the center. I added a glittery bird for a touch of whimsy. Here are some photos of the box from various angles.
Inside I added an assortment of trinkets and do-dads that can be added to different kinds of projects. If you click on each photo, you can get a larger view of things.
Well, there you have it--my first altered embellishment box. It wasn't quite so intimidating once I got started!
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your sweet comments. I appreciate each one and enjoy reading them. Have a wonderful week ahead!
