Vintage Altered Box a Shabby Is Chic Boutique DT Project

Good morning friends, Kim here today to share with you my next DT project for Shabby is Chic Boutique on Facebook.
This time I have altered a wooden box for a gift for a friend.


I painted this box with a coat of gesso, then gave it an application of my crackle medium, then another coat of paint. I set it aside to dry and once it was I got out some of the gorgeous napkins from the SCB Store.

 

I placed the napkins on top of the crackle and when it dries it gives a lovely image, and it appears as though the box has been painted in the beautiful napkin images. I tore up a few interesting pieces from various napkins and added them to the top and side of the box as well.



I used mod podge to adhere to napkins on the box, and once it was dry it was time to get out some gorgeous SCB laces and trims!


I added some of the new mesh doilies and shabby rose buttons to one side of the box for interest. I also cut apart the butterfly lace trim and added one butterfly to each corner of the box, embellishing them with pieces of the pearl and rhinestone trim.

Lastly, I added one of the pearl and rhinestone bling pieces to the front of the box. I also used the mini silver spoon from SCB, which I filled with pink micro beads, and some flowers to finish off the top of the box.


For the inside of the box I painted the mirror white and decorated it with the mini pink floral trim. The bottom of the box I painted a shabby pink colour, and filled  it with some laces and goodies I am sending to my friend.


I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will pop over to the Shabby is Chic Boutique Store today to stock up on some gorgeous items for your craft room!
