Altered Packaging Box + tutorial


Altered packaging box
Pleased by the response to shaped card & reusing I am sharing one more project with reusing and a tutorial.

Altered packaging box
 Lets get started!
Step 1. When I saw this box I loved the peach color and decided to alter it into a gift box with soft color scheme,mostly peach & white ! Started by sealing the  top opening and making a opening at side ,Covered the text by adding layer of light colored card stock ,distressed the edges before adhering the cardstock pieces.


Seal the openings and cover the text with cardstock.

Step 2. I wanted the next layer to be white.Just white ?
No.. lets create some texture ,in came a stencil (Lessology win) and gel medium. I used  textured paper from invitation card (ya the same from shaped card). After the gel medium dried I realized it needed some colors !

Resist technique with Gel Medium and LSG spray
Step 3.Used LSG Ramblin rose spray .Color is pretty but does not go with peach ! Now what ?? lets see if yellow can help..light color scheme OUT and bold bright IN ! (as always ,happens with you too ?) Mean while I attached a golden twine with tassel to the box.

More color with Mustard seed Distress Ink
Step 4.Done with the background now time to embellish the box .Doily ,handmade flowers,die-cut flourish,glitter and few pearls.

Altered gift box
Supplies used :
Missed adding Sakura Acrylic Gel Medium !

Thanks to Sathya for doily and flourishes ,Lessology for Stencil and Rainbow Craftykari for gel medium.
