Alter a box
Try It On Tuesday which, of course if your the lucky winner of our challenge, which is to alter a box, you could be spending your prize of £15 at our sponsor's The Craft Barn. I made this oragami box with T. H Vintage Shabby paper stash papers. I altered it later by adding an additional sheet on the lid of the box, punched a pretty pattern mid way down on the lid, which doesn't show here. I then secured some white ribbon. From the same paper stash, I drew around the outside of a masking tape roll, for one flower, then on the inside of the same roll for the two smaller flowers. I then completed them using the spiral method, which you will find in my Papercraft Tutorial blog. I then completed the box, ready waiting for me to add a gift, with a punched out round label, stamped 'With Love' and added a few swirls. I look forward to seeing your altered boxes, I'm sure there will be some amazing ideas.
