Altered Shoe Box

Hello,  I m Ann from the Chattering Robin's Nest Altered Items Design Team and the blog AnnMakes.   Before I fell in love with paper crafting and mixed media I used to have a love thing for shoes!  Yup, that was many years ago.  Fast forward a couple of kids and decades later and well I spend so much money on my always growing boys' feet that I just save what I can and put it towards craft supplies instead!

Today I have this altered Artist Trading Block that I made into a small gift box.

I used this chip board Artist Block from.  I painted it a lovely shade of pink on the inside, to match the shoes.

I assembled the block and left the top open.  I covered the block with lovely papers from the Robin's Nest and I used some adhesives to secure it all in place.  I used some metallic dew drops to decorate the flower and the exclamation point.

 I also used four of the same Dew Drops as the little feet of the box.   I used some Rosy straw also available from Robin's Nest, to decorate the flower. I used the same Rosy Straw to hold the shoes together.  To do so I pierced little holes into the shoes with a paper piercer and threaded the straw, then I glued that to the back of the flower embellishment.

Products used from and available at the Robin's Nest shop:
Rosy Straw
Rosy Cards
Rosy Chevron Card Stock
Pink Zebra Glitter Card Stock

Other products:
Beacon adhesives
Acrylic pink craft paint
Chipboard Gina's Designs
