PostSubject: Altered Box - due 4/30   Wed Mar 16, 2011 4:46 pm

welcome My challenge for this weekend is to alter a box. It can be made of any material and you can make it as simple or elaborate as you'd like as long as you incorporate paper!

For my example, I started with a wood box, painted the edges, then covered with patterned paper. I'm actually going to be turning this into a type of photo shadowbox, but for the weekend challenge something like this is all you need to create!

I'll post a picture of the finished project in the gallery and on my blog after the bash!

Before:





Painted:



After:





Thanks for looking! I can't wait to see what everyone creates! :-D

Entries are due by April 30th, 11:59pm PST

Thank you! :-D Remember, you can use any type of box. It can be a cardboard box, a tissue box, a pressboard box, a wood box, etc. Anything goes as long as you use paper in some way to pretty it up! :-D

Here's my entry. It was a box that I'd received a purse in. I completely covered all the surfaces with papers from Papermainia.

Mbox started it's life s a lowly box containing scented oil, until I discoveret would hold Cricut cartridges. http://papersecrets.net/psgallery/displayimage.php?pid=1194 Pretty plain. So I painted the edges cream, cut up a piece of fabric paper b Michael Miller and glued with Bookbinding Adhesive by Club Scrap. I fussy-cut a piece of Best Creation paper. . There was only enough paper pieces for 3 side, so I used a Dream sticker,some bling, and a scrap of the swirl to cover my end piece. It is much prettier to see everyday and to carry to crop.
Thanks for the challenge.[img]

I've been wanting to do something with this old ugly box for some time. I guess it took this challenge to make me finally do something about it lol! I used retired Stampin' Up! papers from my stash to cover the box. I don't remember the name of this collection...sorry.

What a fun weekend.

Awesome entry! Love it! :-D I think a mini to go with it would be fabulous! Maybe there's another challenge theme it would go with so you could enter the coordinating album into another PS challenge? Though the Birthday Bash entries are due tonight, we have until the end of the month to complete entries for the April drawing. happy

Pammie Kay, love that you even show what you're using it for! You know I'm totally jealous of your cricut cartridge collection there, right? Fabulous job!

Scrappinheaven, that is so cool! LOVE LOVE LOVE seeing the before and after. The papers you selected are lovely...HUGE difference!

Thank you all so much for participating in my challenge! You guys have really outdone yourselves! excited

Hi Scrappinheavin

Love the revamp of the box, the colors you chose turned out lovely. I cannot see it in the Gallery to make a comment. Have you put it in there yet?

Hmmm...It should be there? I know I uploaded it to the challenge gallery and I thought if you used keywords that it automatically put them in your own personal gallery?? Do I have to upload them twice? Still new at uploading the pictures and I must say that the gallery is very confusing to me.
