Altered Wooden Box A Gift For My Nan

Hi everyone, on Friday I shared this pretty wooden box I decorated and personalised as a Christmas gift to my Nan.

Altered Wooden Box

I purchased the plain wooden box from The Works UK.

These boxes are inexpensive and make lovely gifts.

I covered it in white Acrylic paint and then measured sections and covered in the First Edition, Mariposa papers by Trimcraft.

Look how happy my nan was to open her gift.

There is so much room in this box, and my Nan has already put it to good use.

I hope this project inspires you, it’s very easy to do and a nice way to update your craft room storage.

Happy Crafting
