Lately I've been fascinated with altered art. So here is my first attempt at it. This past Valentines Day I bought a box of chocolate truffles for my honey. When he opened up the box, we were surprised how clever the box was made. It had trays at different levels inside with the chocolates. Pretty cool huh! I saved this box thinking that I might do something with it, like use it to store some of my small stuff in. When I was in North Carolina visiting my cousin that works at the library, they had a shelf just as you walk out the door, with free books you could take. I took at couple books and one was a very old, falling apart book on French grammar. Before I began on my project, I took the trays out very carefully. I then tore the pages out of the old book and used good old modge podge to cover it. I then printed out vintage birds, bugs, butterflies from a vintage collage group on Flickr, and glued them down. And then covered the whole thing with modge podge. Glued the trays back in and there you have it.
This is what the box looked like before I started.
