Altering Boxes is Fun!!!

Good morning!!!  I've got lots of photos in this post so hope you will hang with me through it all!! 

Today is Wednesday, so the Passionately Artistic Blog is here to inspire you again this week!  
I am showing you a set of cards and a pretty altered box!   See the little butterflies on the inside of the lid? 
I altered a little box that originally came with a little photo album inside.  It's perfect for regular A2 sized cards.  I did make two little barriers on either end to keep the cards from sliding around.

I tied some pretty lace around the cards and envelopes too!  
Here is a look at the inside of the box without the cards.
I did lots of sponging with Tea Dye ink to age everything.  
I used a combination of Beacon 3-in-1 glue, Scor-Tape, Mod Podge, 
and Scotch adhesive glue to attach everything.
And here are the cards!  
They will be great for birthdays or thinking of you cards.

I hope I have inspired you to create your own altered box and cards!  It's really a lot of fun!
Hope you have a wonderful day and see you again soon!  Thanks for stopping by!

Here are the supplies I used:

Our Daily Bread designs sets-Faith, Scripture Series 1, Thinking of You
Neenah Cream card stock and K & Co designer paper
Stazon Brown ink and Tim Holtz Tea Dye ink
Cuttlebug and embossing folders-Cassie's Brocade and Preserves

Buttons, pearls, lace and seam binding
