Today I have something a bit different to show you. You know those "must try" and/or "must make one day" lists most of us have? Well, mine is veeeery long and I decided it was high time I start crossing some things off it. So today I'm going to show you something I've been wanting to do for a while, but for some reason kept postponing it. But I finally did it. I was going for a shabby chic look and I used this picture from the Live and love crafts blog as an inspiration.
So ... Here's my very first altered egg carton box.
I made this for a friend of mine and I know she loves pink and flowers so I used lots of those on my box. I hope she will like it!
The box was originally kind of greyish colour so the first thing I did was painting the whole box with two coats of gesso. And then I went decorating. All around the box I glued this gorgeous pink box pleated satin ribbon, a pearl string and a flower trim.
To decorate the top I used a lot of flowers from different brands, some more of those crochet embellishments that I had in my stash, some beads, a doily and a big butterfly.
And this is what the inside of the box looks like. As you can see I used another (smaller) doily and some more flowers, butterflies, beads and crochet embellishments to decorate the inside.
I also made a video of this box. Check it out if you want.
And that's it from me today. Have a wonderful day and enjoy the weekend! xx
