Altered box

Morning. I'm back to show you a project I did. I was sent a metal mesh type box. The lid comes off. Looks like it holds paper.
I used bazzil on the outside. Double sided pink. I put the dark side inside. I cut two pieces so they can be glued to the lid. I used colorbok black textured card stock on bottom piece. I also cut two pieces . I basically made a sand which with metal in middle.
Added a antique image of a lady in a car. I put this image on top of a lace oval. I added few glimmer misted flowers. Some bling in pearls.
Here it is.


  1. Beautiful, Rhonda. I really like the old vintage picture.

    1. ty hun. i dont do vintage alot. not really sure how to do it actually . i got the image in a swap a few years ago and didnt never know what to do with it. :)

  2. What a great altered box! When I have tried to do altered art it never turns out as lovely as this, that's for sure. (swellmomma from swp-bot follow me #5 swap)

  7. Hi Rhonda! I'm Dianne (skippydancer) on swap-bot. The box is just beautiful, as is your website. Mine is about my virtual walk/bike ride to the west coast. I'm working on a mosaic art blog that I hope to have up and running, very soon.

    I'll be reading you!

    I love how you took such a practical item and make it something beautiful to look at. Looking at all your other crafts has been such a treat for the eye. Thank you for being so creative!
