DAY- 22 Altered items

Today's items are a continuation of my Mother-in-Laws gifts. They are misc. altered items for her newly redecorated living room and the box that goes with the cards from yesterday. Thanks again for all the wonderful support, see below and get Scrappy!

These are both store bought items that I altered by adding some colors from her living room. The candle was $3.99, I added some gold patterned Minds Eye paper to the outside of the candle, some burgundy Stickles, copper ribbon and a gorgeous butterfly, her favorite! I finished it with the dangle beads, a Christmas ornament I took apart and tied together with ribbon.

The frame is a ceramic frame, purchased for $2.99. I added a coat of Distress crackle paint ( tarnished brass) a few K & Company flowers and again some fabric butterflies. Topped off with a lovely picture of her granddaughter :)

This box holds the personilzed stationary from yesterday. It is a $2.99 bolsa wood box from Michaels. I added purple paints, some peral Glimmer mist, K&Company chipboard letters and a few Prima flowers with rhinestone centers. Lastly some dried eucalyptus and wildflowers for dimension and scent. The box has plenty of room, for a personalized address book, next on my list :)

The inside of the box: I lined the inside with left over papers from the actual stationary I made. They were all glued in but I did not Mod Podge them since that seems to be a bit sticky for a week or so and I was adding the paper inside. You could put a clear coat of some kind if you wanted to protect it. I also accented all the seams with a gold sharpie to add a little color.

Thanks for stopping by today, only 3 days left, get Scrappy!
