Hello Crafty Friends…. Chaitali here!
Do you like to recycle empty boxes? Do you enjoy altering?
Today, I am sharing one such project. I have altered a chocolate box to a jewellery box using the very pretty Purple Passion Collection along with others supplies by Little Birdie Crafts.
Steps to create this:
Firstly, I covered the top of the chocolate box with beautiful papers from Purple Passion cardstock 6 in x 6in along with handmade flowers Elira from the Birds and Berries collection. Also added some lace. I distressed the edges of each layer and raised the top layer using some cardboard pieces.
Next, I covered the sides of the box with papers from Purple Passion Cardstock by Little Birdie Crafts.
Then, I applied a coat of clear gesso on an empty ribbon spool. Later, I coloured it with Metallic Wax Berry Glaze and covered the top of it with paper from ‘Purple Passion’. Further, I created a shaker on it. Added a bird embellishment from Purple Passion Ephemera in the shaker along with microbeads Muted Orchid. I also filled the shaker with tiny stars and hearts.

Then, I heat embossed chipboards from Little Birdie Crafts using VersaMark Watermark stamp pad and Champagne embossing powder. https://littlebirdiecrafts.com/collections/chipboard/products/chipboard-oval-frame-1pc-pbci-little-birdie https://littlebirdiecrafts.com/collections/chipboard/products/chipboard-happy-together-6pc.
I cut off the oval chipboard in half and attached around the ribbon spool and the shaker.
Further, I fussy cut leaves and birds from the Purple Passion paper collection.
Next, I added the last layer of paper from Purple Passion. I tore one side with hands and distressed the other sides.
Finally, I added some more handmade flowers, fussy cut leaves and birds, emphera elements, and a word quote chipboard, ‘Happy Moments’ by Little Birdie Crafts to build the composition around the ribbon spool. Also, added two jute thread bows.
