Here is what I chose for my project. A altered box in the Halloween theme.
I chose to use one of them white boxes from Michael's that has a little closure on the lid.
I chose to color the outside with Black paint from Making Memories. I painted the lid, the 4 sides and bottom.
I then took Making Memories eat your carrots which is a bright orange. I painted the inside of the box and lid with this color. Seems that my paint cracked at the part where the lid folds down so i glued on a piece of orange ribbon that says HAPPY HALLOWEEN. I hope this helped over the mistake,
I then got my Rit dye in orange out and cut me a piece of white lace to cover the whole top, all 4 sides. I put the lace in the dye mixture and swirled it around. I had to do it about 5 different times to get the orange I was looking for. Here is the dyeing pictures.
After I attached my lace I took a bright orange ink pad and went all over the top of my lid dabbing it all over. I added 3 small silk roses in orange to the bottom left and top right corners. I then took 2 ghost vinyl stickers , the word boo and oooooo and stars all from the same sheet and adhered them to the top of my lid. Here is what that looks like.
After I got done decorating my box I filled it with Halloween goodies and mailed it off to it's new owner.
Here is another picture of my Altered Halloween Box.
