Dress-up Recycled Boxes for Gift Giving!

The Altered Pages Design Team has so many ideas using Altered Pages images printed on Craft Attitude printable film!  We have been having tons of fun working with this awesome product!  Hopefully you will try some of them in your near future crafting.

 
Today Karen Conner has altered recycled boxes for gift giving.  Finding the perfect gift box for a present can be difficult.  When you make your own gift box you can create a theme from the inside to the wrapping of your gift.  
 

Print Altered Pages Angel Voices collage sheet on Craft Attitude.  Adhere to the top of the box. The boxes has texture, Craft Attitude film adheres to the texture beautifully.
 
 
Add the pearl trim and the flowers and ribbon.
 

Save all those jewelry boxes, they are perfect to alter and  make great special gift boxes. 
 
Gift Box Supplies:
Altered Pages Collage Sheet Angel Voices
Craft Attitude
Boxes to alter
Flowers
Ribbon
Pearl trim
Glue
Stamped sentiment on tissue
 
 
 
Add an altered ornament to your gift boxes! 
 
 
Use a paper mache star shaped ornament, prime with gesso . Then painted with acrylic paint. Once I glued the image down, I went over the edges with  gold metallic wax. Add flower & ribbon to hang.
