But firstly - what a bad blogger! Never mind, back finally :)
I found a rather beaten up little box costing £1 in a Charity shop the other week, and it was crying out for a bit of love and attention - and altering.
I bought 2 sheets of 12x12 card in my local craft shop, and set about covering it, and also adding a few embellishments. I painted over the whole thing with Ranger's Glue N Seal (which sadly has been discontinued), giving it 2 coats to give it good protection.
Really pleased with how it turned out - for now I'm just admiring it on my crafty shelves above my desk, as I can't decide what to store in it :)
