Altered Box for Susie & Page for Sally

Hey Y'all!!

I just finished an altered box for my best scrappy friend Susie.  :)  I finally got it to her so I can now post the pics and share with you.  :)

First I took a box that I purchased from Hobby Lobby. 

Then I measured the box and traced around the outside to cut paper to cover the sides and top.

Then I cut out what I had measured and traced. 

I then painted the box with a purple color that coordinated with my paper.  I painted the edges, the entire inside of the lid and box and bottom of the box.  I neglected to take photos of that part!  :)

Then I applied the papers after letting the box dry.  I used Glossy Modge Podge.  If you don't like the shiny look you might want to use Matte Modge Podge.  After I had it all modged podged and dried, I added some feet to the bottom.  I used tiny wooden spools for the feet and painted them gray.  Then, I embellished the top with all kinds of goodies! 

Here's the finished top of the box.

I have also made a slide show with some close ups of the top.  :)

Here's a list of the products I used.
