So the recent decluttering process unearthed a few more mooncake boxes for me to alter...like this one. :)
Here is the box before I threw black stuff on it...*LOL*
I started by adhering wrapping tissue to the whole box for base texture.
Next, I adhered chipboard on the cover, then covered the whole box with a coat of black gesso.
Then I went over the box with a silver glaze...a little shimmer and depth.
After that comes the super fun part - embellishing! I started by decorating the edges of the cover.
Then I went a little crazy with flowers, leaves and bling.
The paper flowers were white so I misted them to match the satin blooms.
It doesn't photograph every well because of the shimmery and glossy finish but it does look better than the original unaltered box, eh? *winks*
