Recently I organised an altered box swap.
The idea was that we took an empty chocolate box or similar, altered it
and then filled it with embellishments and other art and craft paraphernalia
that we thought our partners would be able to use in their work.
This is the box I made.
I painted it wedgewood blue on the outside and antique copper inside.
I then collaged it with reproduction vintage labels and a sepia lady image
and embellished it with vintage buttons and lace, a cameo,
lock and key, old stamps, tissue tape and an adage ticket.
Then I filled both layers and sent it off across the pond!
I had a lot of fun making this box and deciding what to put inside!
