Shabby Chic Altered box

Heu lovely ppl...

Its always fun to up cycle, alter or change the boring look of our old belongings. So this time after thinking for almost a day, my eyes caught hold of this ugly looking nutties box which I use for storing my lazercuts..(have this box with me for last 25 years..:) )

{Warning: This is a photo heavy post :P..}

Lets start...
Took the old square box, used gesso to cover it and than painted it with Camlin Artist's Acrylic Colors (mixed titanium white, medium magenta, scarlet lake) to get the pastel pink tone.

I have used  Jodie Lee's Butterfly Paper pack from Prima (its a gorgeous collection )

Cut strips of desired size as per the box dimensions.

To give a little aged look i use Tonic Studio's Paper Distresser

Used my fav adhesive Hobby idea's fabric glue..sticks almost everything on any surface..If u look carefully u will be able to notice the distressed paper edges. I have not inked the edges to keep that softer look and it helps the paper to jut blend in the colored background.

For the lid I used my corner puncher to round of the corners as per the design of the box.

The Butterfly paper are so pretty so i thought of making flowers using the same pp.Here I have used Heartfelt Creations's Sun Kissed Fleur die set..(i skipped the using the coordinating stamp)

For shaping the flowers I used Mcgills Paper blossom embossing tools..and since i dont hv a proper embossing pad I used the Sospeso Transparente embossing just fine..

To give a little dimension to the flowers I sprinkled a little Diamond dust on the tips of the flower petals.

The pack has such lovely images that I couldn't  stop myself from some fussy cutting..
(adhered the fairy with two way foam tape)

Now comes the layout part for the lid..I have put together the handmade flowers, mulberry roses, Prima's  Resin Shabby Chic Treasures and Swirls.
For the oval center resin charm I used Viva's Inka Gold..just love the golden finish it gives..easy to apply and quick to dry..

To finish the look I have also used lace from my mom's stash..

And finally here is the complete look....
