Some more Altered Christmas/Winter Boxes!

Here are a couple of more boxes that I altered. This first one is Santa's Sleigh which I covered in papers by Pink Paislee and My Mind's Eye. I added some snow covered branches, presents, a jingle bell, snowflakes, pine cones, ribbon, white Pom-Pom Trim, hemp cord and a button. The words are stickers by Me and My Big Ideas. And it is all loaded up with glitter!

And this next one is a wooden skate, you know one of those $1 wooden ornaments you are supposed to paint! I picked it up in Michaels for pennies. It came with a wire hanger on it, which I removed. I covered it in some Basic Grey snowflake paper, added some laces, which I made little x's out of hemp cord, and a bow with a jingle bell, a button and a glittered snowflake. The box is covered in Fancy Pants, Arctic Chill paper. For the box top, I simple covered it with some Aleene's Tacky glue and then poured tons of glitter onto it. Added some ribbon and Pom-Pom trim along the edge. And added some snow covered branches and white berries to it. To finish it off, I added a bow and another glittered snowflake.

Hope you like them!! They were inspired by Linda Albrecht's beautiful work.

My friend, Pat, who is just the sweetest I might add, is giving away two See D's Christmas Stamp sets on her blog, Color Your World With Me! Go and check it out HERE!

Thanks to everyone for stopping by and leaving me some love!
I hope you have a Wonderful Day!!

Hugs, Melissa
