Altered Gift Box

I just made this gift box for a scrappy friend of mine. It was a plain wood box I bought at the local craft store for $1. I painted it pink with acrylic paint. I used my threading water punch to create the trim. I cut a strip of Basic Gray Sugared patterned paper 7/8 inch wide. I then punched on both sides to create the circle trim. Attached it to the box with zip dry glue (best glue EVER!!!). I then made the bow for the top. I used a tutorial from the Splitcoast Stampers website. Lined the inside with the matching patterned paper and added some pink fluff!! I love how it turned out and i'm really excited to give it out.





Thanks for looking!!
