SPRING BLOOM - ALTERED MATCHBOX

Hello friends, welcome back to my blog!! Hope you all are doing great and am very excited to be back with an altered art project after a long time. Its my favorite time of the year - yayy its spring finally here in California. The weather is warm and trees are in full bloom everywhere around me. The magnolias and the daffodils makes me feel happy and fresh. So to celebrate this season and welcome these flowers around me created this project "Spring bloom". 




This time also I have an altered art project just like my previous spring themed projects. I have altered an cell phone box which is in a match box style. I have saved this cute and sturdy box in my bin for a long time.  

Process:

I covered the outer layer of the box with DCWV paper pack.Adhered black lace and Rhinestone chain.Distressed the edges using black ink and used red shimmer spray for the top of the box. 



Embellishments:
All the flowers are handmade using recollections punch. Glued a small piece of twine , craft pearls, silver beads , leaves and flowers . Since the flowers are created inspired by the cherry blossom and daffodils, all the flowers are either in pen or yellow color. 


Inside of the box:
For the inside of the box I have again used DCWV pattern paper. Distressed the edges using brown and black ink. The sentiment is handwritten. 



I made a matching tag to go with the box by recycling a part of packaging carton. 

Hope you all like my post... Do leave your comments/suggestions.See you soon with another crafty post.  Happy spring and summer to you all!!
