Christmas is fast approaching! And I have done ZERO shopping.....not a good thing. I should probably get motivated but I have no ideas either. This is typical lately.....
Today I have an altered box to share with you. This is a 9" round paper mache box. I used Bo Bunny's Noel Collection from last Christmas. I had a stack of this paper and thought it would be fun to use for this box.
I kept the box fairly simple - just covered it in paper and mod podge. I used a little Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age the paper. This great bow was made with the Bo Bunny wrappings that match the Noel collection. I glued the bow to the top of the box with Fabri-tac
For the outside of the box I used a little bit different paper than what would generally be used on a Christmas box. I loved this brown paper with the books and ornaments. It just had a very "homey" feeling to me.
This is more of the great wrappings from Bo Bunny. The green actually came with the little button attached to it. It's such a great element.
Inside I used some more of the paper from the top of the box and then a contrasting green print for the sides.
I tried to keep this box simple since it was a more vintage-style. The plan is to use this to store Christmas cards. It could also be filled with treats for a fun family gift.
