Altered Art - Box







This is something I whipped up yesterday whilst watching TV. This is a SGD2 box from Daiso. I really had fun altering it. I now regret that I didnt buy more. Mental note to self - I would have to buy more on my next trip there. Must bring a big suitcase and fill it up!!!

I used my old Creative Imaginations paper and started cutting. After I decided a strong blue for the background, I coated the whole box with a layer of blue acrylic paint. Thereafter I stuck on the flowers annd sealed the whole thing together with mod podge to seal everything. I think its a simple box but I am not so sure about the butterflies though. Comments anyone?

Hi Sharine,

I made the beaded butterflies myself. Glad you like them. Thanks for the recipe. Just received it.

Yes, acrylic can be used on most surfaces I think.

Sure Nad - I took everything that was left at Daiso. Will pick some for you cos my sil wants to bring me to the one in Jurong. Even more stuff!!! Yippee!!!

OMG! Michelle thanks alot for this box! I didn't knew that you made it for me till I received a text saying it was for me! Not only you surprised me with this box, you took the trouble to come all the way to meet me at Mid Valley to pass this lovely gift along with Clarissa & Sean's painted Christmas ornaments for me. You are so lovable! Thanks again from the bottom of my heart. I appreciate it! You made my day!
