An altered box.... For the Craft Fair...

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all enjoying a crafty day,
This is my latest creation,
I'm involved with a craft fair, Taking place later in the month,
This is one of the items I'll be selling,
I would value your opinions.

This is how the box looked when I bought it.

My first job was to remove the hinges & clasp,
Then I got rid of any loose pieces with sand paper.

Then came the fun bit... Decorating...
I started by gluing a piece of wallpaper on to the lid, 
Then I coated it all with Gesso.
I then applied a coat of paint,
Once this was dry, I finished with a coat of Modge Podge.
Finally, I added the pretty bits.





Items used.
Box (The Range)
Gesso.
Acrylic Paint.
Mod Podge.
Sand Paper.
Wallpaper (I wouldn't be without it)
Lace & Flowers (From my stash)

Thank you so much for visiting my blog,
It means so much to me.

Lots of love,
Sylvia x
Happy crafting.
