To make the box I used a regular plain brown box you get at Michaels or any craft store, painted it with Gesso, then plain black paint. When the paint was totally dry I then used Tattered Angels Stiletto Glimmer Glam on the paint, I love Glimmer Glam it has such sparkle to it and it drys shinny. I used Graphic 45's Curtain Call 12 by 12 sheets of paper, cut them using Spellbinders scalloped dies and glued them on the box. I hand made the flower and the stick pin myself and added some black tulle to finish that embellishment off. The finishing touch was Tim Holtz film strip and a metal key from K & Company.
So what do you all think of my first Altered Box? I really thought it came out well. Next up I am going to do a Christmas one.
