Altered Box for the Paper Secrets Birthday Bash

The Paper Secrets Birthday Bash officially starts 10am PDT today on their forum! Come join in on all the fun games and challenges scheduled for this weekend…for each challenge you complete and upload to the gallery, you will be entered to win a prize. Each challenge has its own prize (pics of the prizes you could win are attached to the individual challenge posts). All entries need to be submitted by 11:59 pm PDT on April 4, 2011.

I’m hosting the altered box challenge. You can alter any type of box you’d like (cardboard, chipboard, wood, etc), as long as you incorporate paper in some way. You can make it as simple or as elaborate as you’d like! For my example today, I went with simple. I started with a plain wood/wooden box:

Then I painted the edges on the interior and exterior:

Then covered all sides with paper:

I’m actually going to be creating a type of photo shadowbox with this, so it’s not embellished yet in these photos. After the weekend, I will post more pics with the completed project. TFL!

***Once you get to the Paper Secrets Forum, just click the topic “Paper Secrets Birthday Bash Games & Challenges.” That will then take you to the challenge and game posts. :-D***

      I don’t mind at all! I normally have a supply list, but since I’m planning to do more with it, I haven’t added that yet. The papers are from Graphic 45′s Le Cirque 12×12 paper pad. Glad you like it!
