Altered Box

Hello Friends...
Today I'm sharing an altered sweet box which is a cardboard box using some quilling flowers and pattern papers.



I have made this as a DT inspiration for Indian Quilling Challenge # 24 Recycle or Upcycle Projects with Quilling in it.

So, here's an angled snap of the picture where u can see the inside a bit also.


Used the same patterned paper for the inside and all sides of the box.

Here is a small Tutorial for this Box...
Materials:
A Cardboard Box
Some patterned Papers
Acrylic Paint
Double sided Foam Tape
Lace
3 mm Quilling Strips for Flowers
Tags
Doily
Mod podge
Brad
Pearls

 As the cover is very beautiful, at first I wanted to keep the cover design intact, but I have two more boxes with the same design...so I altered it.

I colored this box with black acrylic paint from all sides. kept it for drying for a day.

Then I measured and cut pattern paper according to all sides and top and inside of the box and covered it.

 

I used mod podge to stick the paper. Also applied a layer of modpodge after all sticking is done. Then I added a layer of patterned paper on the top cover.I used double sided foam tape to stick this layer as I wanted some height.  Then I cut a doily into half and pasted it as per the design I wanted. I glued some lace on the lower part. Cut out the tag from the same Paper pack.Foam tape is used to stick the tags here also. I used a brad on the strip of paper that I attached on the lace.

And completed the look with two Quilled flowers. Here I used 3mm strips to make the flowers.
Decorated the empty space with some pearls.. And here's the finished project..

Hope you like the project.
