Altered tin box – Distress Mixed media craft

Altered tin box – Distress Mixed media craft

Alter Tin box

My husband got a nut box from flight, I immediately knew I need to do some craft in it. I altered the tin box to a magical land which says, “Believe and Be Yourself”.

For the outside of the box, I used a green scrapbook paper and for inside I ued a pink scrapbook paper. For the sides, I cut strips of the same paper and distressed them. To distress the green paper I used Artistry Ink Amazon trail and black shadow Ink.


Distress paper

After distressing the paper, I glued the paper to the tin. Then, later added the sentiments and embellishment. I had few peacock feathers, what else you need to glam up an old distress box, I used them and was extremely satisfied with the end result. I cut few butterflies from a scrapbook paper and added them as embellishment.
