Its actually pretty simple. First you take the box and remove the cutting strip. Next gesso all the edges then flatten the box and cover with patterned paper. I used Basic Grey. I then added more paper on the edges. The holes for the ribbon are punched and the box is then put back together and the fold over edge trimmed. Finally I added the trim bits(Prima flowers, gems and napkin butterflies.). I then filled the box with some of my spare ribbon bits.
Now it's over to you to show us your altered recycled boxes. Just hop on over to the Try it on Tuesday blog to view the wonderful creations from my Team mates and to enter yours.

Now I have to apologize for not posting lately. This weekend Belle had her Dance exams then with Sunday being so nice I wound up spending too much time in the heat and got heat stroke. I am feeling allot better now but it was very scary to say the least. So there has been no time to be crafting. I have some crafty days planned this week and will be catching up soon.
Don't forget I still have my blog candy up for grabs. To find out more click here. You have until midnight June 30 to enter. See sidebar for picture and link.
Thats all I got for now. Thanks for stopping by and have a great day. Angela
