Altered Boxes - Australian Scrapbooking Ideas #26

Hi everyone,.......the lastest issue of 
"Australian Scrapbooking Ideas" Issue 26
is out now and I my assignment 
was to alter "Recycled BOXES".

I created three projects using old recycled boxes.
If you missed the my blog post of my 
paper cake, here it is....... HERE.

Today I will be sharing with you all, my 
other 2 altered projects.
This first one is a shabby chic styled box
with lots of lace and flowers. 
Great box for gift giving.

Top view of the top of box,
lots of flowers and butterflies.

My next box was actually a tissue box 
which I decorated with all different techniques
and layers.
"Home is where the Heart is"

It seems so long ago that I created this projects
back in November 2013 , last year!!!

All the materials and the step by step
on how to make your very own decorated boxes,
 are in the magazine, 
so do yourself a favour and purchase ASI #26 magazine at your local 
Scrapbooking store or newsagent shop.

Until next time, Have a great day
Cheers  Adriana  xx  :)

Adriana these are absolutely amazing! The details are incredible and I love the muted colours.

Must be weird looking back at projects you'd done so long ago! They are both amazing - the little 'home' one is super cute! You do upcycled creations sooo well.....I keep collecting boxes - but that's about it!!!
