Christianne prettifies a box

Layouts and cards are great but altered items can be a bit special. Christianne has done a marvellous job altering this box. I know lots of little girls (and big girls) who would love a sweet treat like this.

Altered box by Christianne
Supplies:
Cardboard Box
Black fly screen
PP- Daisy D's
Acrylic Paint- Making MemoriesCrackle Medium- No Name
Letter Stickers, Flower- Doodlebug
Bling- Heidi Swapp
Distress Ink- Ranger
Grungeboard
Black Pen- Sakura
Button
Upholster the bottom of the box with patterned paper. Paint the top first with purple, then with crackle medium and at last with pink paint. Let it dry between all layers. Paint also the grungeboard. All edges are distressed with black ink, grungeboard and letter stickers are lined with a black pen. Bind a bow with fly screen, add a flower with a button and strap the grungeboard. If you like you can adhere some bling!!
