Altered trinket box–Marsha’s Craft Therapy Challenge of the Week

Hope this finds everyone safe following weather & other strange happenings.

Altered Box for Craft Therapy Challenge of the week

Here’s a little papier mache box, round, about 3″, that I altered for Marsha’s Challenge at the Facebook Group–Craft Therapy. The image on top is Gecko Galz from a collage sheet for August (Crazy Mannequins). I painted the box with Liquitex Basics acrylics in black. The square images (three on top and several around the sides) are from Hampton Art Paris Montage stamp (think about a dozen inchies of Parisian goodies) –stamped them with Jet Black Stazon on Georgia Pacific white cardstock, colored them (some) with Prismacolor & Cretacolor pencils, cut them out & adhered all the images with Gloss Mod Podge applied to the box & the back of the images. The cameo came in an Art-C ephemera ATC pack (904). The pink trim is from JoAnn’s bargain bins & it & the cameo were adhered with superglue. Hope you like! Have a great week!

I’m adding this to the Try it Tuesday Alter It challenge for this week where the sponsor is The Craft Barn (
