Altered wooden box that I did for my mom....

I had a lot of fun doing this box. This one is smaller then the one I did for my self.

Mom wanted me to do it in yellow and blue, Ukrainian colors... :) So I did. Plus right now she LOVES yellow.

*Yellow acrylic paint.
*Cotton White StazOn
*Clear Gem Stickers by Martha Stewart (found these in the wedding and cake decorating section at WalMart)
*Prima flowers
*other gems
*CTMH Treasure life stamp set for the flowers, leafs on the box and the words on the lid.

Here are some pictures.

Mom's name in English means "Faith" so I picked up some charms that has "faith" on them and added to the box.

Close up of the flower on the lid. This flower stamp came from Hero Arts. I added some jewels to the middle of the flowers.

Mom LOVED her box.. :) and I'm so glad that I had time to do it for her before she left back home.

Thanks for looking and hopefully this will give you some ideas for your altering projects! :)
