This is my Altered Box for a swap at
which is the member group for discount shopping at
I've never done an altered box before. So this was all new to me.
At a church garage sale, I found a really nice unfinished box for
just 25 cents. I couldn't pass that up and it was the perfect size.
I did some sanding and painted the box white. Around the edge of the
box lid is a gold sticker strip.
I use flowers, vintage clip art and pearls to decorate the top.
Well, now, that wasn't so hard.
