Another Altered Box


This is a box  which I altered for my friends birthday.
The box was a Kraft backed box which  I covered with InkaGold in this gorgeous pink color. The papers are from SEI Juliette. I didn't have the full range of papers as I had used them to do a book for my Mum's 60th Birthday, But as the box is only 5" square I had plenty from my off cuts and the rub ons and epoxy stickers.
The back of the front page I left plain with just the Inkagold. This was because I found  cutting out the aperture was not as easy as I had thought :).
The back cover was covered with another paper from the range. What I forgot to take a photo of is the front of this page. This is the bit which shows through the aperture on the front. for this I spent quite a bit of time working out what would show through the aperture. 
I finally settled on a paper with large flowers on it. I then trimmed it so that I got the best view of the flower through the cover. The grey strip down the left hand side is from the sticker sheet and the two epoxy stickers are also from the matching packs.
All the goodies to make this were bought from The Stamp Pad, Saddleworth.

Happy Crafting
