Upcycled box by Yvonne Yam

I love altering sturdy boxes. Especially when I get to use cute supplies from the Purple Pumpkin store! :)

The base of the box was first sprayed with a layer of gesso. Then I scrunched some wrapping tissue on the lid and added some acrylic paints. I finished with a layer of glass bead gel for a lovely glitter sheen.

Now comes the fun part. I upcycled an old leather phone case as a mat, then added a purple crochet doiley, a large fabric owl button, crochet blooms and a resin rose. I also added some yummy twine!

Hope you like my upcycled box! Till the next time!
