Altered Baby Box


Today I have a cute little project to share.  I found this little wooden box at a local craft store all roughed up and ready for some colour.  I decided to try my hand at altering it.  I pulled out my retired Nursery Suite  DSP and went to work,.  I struggled to cover over the letters, so I pried them off and die cut some out of chipboard with the Big Shot.  I used a sponge and ink to cover over the actual parts of the box that were visible, but once they were inked up, the colour was too vibrant, so I decided to sponge over it with Very Vanilla Craft Ink which added a nice soft feel to the block.  This little block opens up into a little keepsake box.  This box is perfect for parents who don't know if they are expecting a little boy, or a little girl.

This is such a gorgeous box! Anyone would be so lucky to receive it! I can't imagine how much work it must have been - but it was definitely worth it.
