Let's get ya started on the hop so you can get your creating on.   If you've hopped over from LYNDA, then you are in the right place because I am number two, woohooo, Several stops along the way will be offering some nifty prizes, so please be sure to keep an eye out for that and have fun.

 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 all that I added some orange candy corn ribbon across the bottom, I took this along all 4 sides.

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.
