Alter away!

Hey, you came back! Glad you did- I have been trying to appeal to all different ladies (and gents) with a variety of projects. So it is nice to see you all here! So this was a plain brown box, I think it had cookie dough. So I cleaned it out because I had the perfect gift to go in the box. Now, I have not shown the gift going in the box (it is a graduation gift for my son) but I wanted to put it in something that was simple, masculine and yet he can take with him to college should he choose. So his album will go in this box. I color sprayed this with several different colors of glimmer mist and shimmerz for the Creative belli challenge.

This is a close up of the sentiment on the top. This box I did for the Allsorts Challenge which was to use something and recycle and/alter it.



So have a great day

Heidi
