ABC Primer Altered Box

It's me again!

As followers of my blog know, I LOVE to alter boxes. I did a whole bunch of them all using Graphic 45 for my mom and sisters for Christmas. I still have plans for a Christmas one for myself (that I still haven't had time to make!) but I had to make one using Graphic 45's ABC Primer paper!

I created a rosette for the top using the ruler graphic from the edge of the paper I used to cover the top of the box. I trimmed the books from the same page and mounted them on grunge board to give them some strength. I added a second rosette for height with one of the borders from the paper pad.

I also trimmed this element from the page used on the top of the box. I mounted this on grunge board as well and bent it to give it dimension.

On the sides of the box I matted these cute graphics on black and then again to red using pop dots.

And of course I covered the inside of the box.

I used this adorable pattern around the edge of the box.

And there you have it!
