Altered chocolate box and frame

Hiya ladies , I hope you are all keeping well x Here is a few of my projects I have been working on this past week x It was my Mams' birthday and I made her something myself rather than buying something and she absolutely loved it . Anyway here are the projects I worked on thanks so much for stopping by and if you leave a comment as always they are much appreciated and I always reply to them Here is the frame I made for my Mam I used 8x8 papermania papers , made my own leather TH tattered flowers , added some vintage buttons to the centres . The frames are my own too as are the banners .
Next thing i did was an altered box for my granddaughter Emilys' soothers/doddies from when she was a baby ( well she is all of 3 now !) I started off with an empty chocolate box which had a hindged lid so i went with a shadow box I first of all applied a pink paint then did a crackle effect with cram paint and pva when this was dry i applied some brushed corduroy distress inks all over i added some distresssed lace and beading to the frame i added some butterfiles from Gers little snippets some stick pins i made myself and a gorgeous handmade flower i got the tutorial here from fiona I love how it turned out and i will post a photo later when it is filled with dodies x
thanks so much for stopping by have a lovely weekend and happy crafting xmaggiex


  1. I love the gifts you made. I would rather make gifts then buy them too! Those are really neat leather flowers.
