altered gift box with braille

I made a pendant for a  friend, and decided to alter a gift box to go with it.
This particular friend is blind, so I used paints, and then little jewels to spell her name in braille.

 (Have you ever tried to read braille?  It's hard!)

Here's the pendant--I'm going to add a ribbon:
Nothing fancy, just a little something fun!

I used paints for the box, but not inks and stamps?  Or even a little all-over collage, with occasion appropriate images?  Speaking of occasion appropriate images from Altered Pages, I also like to alter little jewelry boxes into Christmas ornaments, like this one:

Thank you for stopping by today;  there will be more altered boxes all this month at Altered Pages!  If you've missed some posts, you might want to scroll through and see all the wonderful ideas from the Design Team this month.
Happy Thursday to you,

  1. the box and pendantvare beautiful! and yes, Braille is quite difficult to read. I love that you made these specially for her. I love that ornament also! xo
