An altered mooncake box....tutorial


Hello friends! It's that time of the year again - when I start altering mooncake boxes! *winks* Read on for a quick tutorial.

1. I started with a sturdy box with shiny gold sides. Since I like the gold sides, I just covered the lid of the box with plaid patterned paper.

2. To create cohesiveness between the box and the patterned paper, I added some washi tape with gold details along the edges of the box.

3. To add a bit of elegance, I glued down some pearl trim.

4. Next, I gessoed and painted some chipboard swirls.

Then I added some lace trim to form the "mat" for my embellishment cluster.

And then build up my embellishment cluster with chipboard, diecuts, fabric and paper blooms, papr leaves and bling.

I finished with some gold mica flakes. 

Hope you are having a great week so far!

Our moon cakes just came in a plastic bag. I can't believe how beautifully you decorated that fancy moon cake box. I guess I need to find another moon cake seller in Hawaii 😄.
