Egg-stra Special Box!!!
Today I've done a bit of altering / recycling!!!!
I started with this
And ended with this
I have to confess that this is not an idea from my creative brain but that of my husband - oh yes !!!! He has some quite good ideas from time to time, but let's not tell him, we don't want it going to his head LOL!!!
So, I guess you want to know how I made this transformation. Well, first I removed the eggs LOL!!!
I removed the label and used this as a template to make a replacement out of patterned paper. I tidied up the edges of the box and then sprayed it with some Gold Glimmer Mist. I covered it with the patterned paper, matted and layered my image and embellished the box.
I used this cute little chick stamp from Magnolia as my focal image, which I coloured using my Copic Markers.
I cut a rectangle of matching patterned paper to cover the egg info inside the lid and filled the box with chocolate eggs!!!
