Whenever I'm browsing I'm looking for clearance finds that would be fun to alter. I found such a thing awhile back when I came across this box that looks like a book! When looking for things to do with my kids on this past Leap Day, we decided to make a time capsule of sorts and put some things in it to "open" on the NEXT leap day in 4 years! I got the idea from THIS POST. So, I decided to alter that book box for all our keepsakes!
I love how it turned out - I used Helmar Acid Free glue to adhere all the paper to the box and Helmar 450 Quick Dry to adhere all the emebellishments. For the butterfly I wanted it to look as if it were about to fly off the page so I used Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give dimension to the top of the wings. The paper I used is all from Pink Paislee and the stamps are Unity Stamp Co.
I created this video so you can watch the entire process from start to finish!
Thanks for stopping by!
