My First Graphic 45 Altered Box

Okay so anyone who does scrapbooking or any paper crafting has seen the gorgeous Graphic 45 paper lines right! These paper collections are so stunning I can hardly stand to cut and use them, but I forced myself to do just that to make my first altered art box.

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.

Awesome job! I like the close-ups of the box and the box itself is very cool as well.
