Altered box

 

Hi all!
Today I have an altered box to show you. I plan to fill it with some chocolate or other sweets and give to our neighbor for Christmas. She is an old lady, 90 years old, but as 25 in her mind. She is so adorable and lovely and I love having her as our neighbor!

Here is the box , previously filled with teabags (I don’t drink tea by the way, but I loved the box, so it’s been standing on one of our shelves in the kitchen for several years)

started with the new Gesso

I wanted to keep the box in tones of green and also white so I used the Velvet “shamrock” and also Sorbet “evergreen”IMG_3191 Added som Colorations “pesto” and Sorbet “frost” IMG_3203
