Altered Box - Make Art - Tutorial

Hi crafters, this is Majo from the Design Team and I'd like to show you how I altered an old box, in which I once received my Latte Macchiato glass. It's just the right size for my Moo-Storage, but more to that later.

Let's get started:

I stamped on water colour paper, masked all my images and added distress ink in 3 different colours: Blueprint Sketch, Fossilized Amber and Stormy Sky.

I added more texture by using two different stencils.

After I stamped the brushes and fuzzy cut them, I added Glossy Accent for the "wet" look.


 This was my box to start with .....
 ..... and this is my storage box after adding all the panels:

 I'm sure you find a box somewhere in your stash, it's so much fun to alter them with all the beautiful images you find at the shop. 

This is what I use the box for, my Moo-Storage .....

Here is a list of the stamps I used:



You can find them all here at the shop:
