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:
