Altered box

Good Evening!
Back with another Altered project. An altered box just in time for Valentine's day.

This is a small approx. 4" x 4" bangle box from a jeweller. 

I have altered it to make a small Valentine's box storing a series of pictures. 

Here is the step-by-step procedure -
  • Paint the entire box in black (This is basically to cover the logo / name of the jeweller)
  • Cut and stick the pattern paper as per the sizes to cover the box from all sides. 
  • Stick the embellishments such as laces, flowers chipboard, sequins etc.
  • Stick a sentiment.
  • For the pictures, take a sheet of paper (size 3" x 12") accordion fold it.
  • Embellish each fold of the paper with some decorations. Put photos on each fold and personalise it.
  • Fold it and put it inside the box. 
  • There!  the box is ready to be gifted... :)
Here are some pictures of the same -
