Giving Gifts!!! Altered Boxes


Good morning my dears,  Well I've finally completed decorating all of my 3 plain boring boxes and I must say I'm rather pleased with how they turned out.  Here you can see the 3 boxes fitting inside each other. 

Sadly I ran out of my precious Almanac paper when I finished the 2nd box but I wasn't going to be beaten!!! lol.  I found some Core' dination white wash card that matched the peach colour of the Almanac paper.  So I stamped all over it with a swirly stamp and then covered the lot in beautiful lace tulle.  It did the trick perfectly.

I've used loads of these beautiful Vintage Morning blossom stamps and dies from Heartfelt creation to make an abundance of flowers for the lids.  I've also used my air dry clay moulds, lace, ribbons, chipboard hearts, tags, etc etc etc.  

Here are some close up pictures of the lids to let you see some more details.
