Altered Christmas Box

Hi Everyone I am a Guest Designer this month at Craft Hoarders Anonymous. The theme for this weeks challenge is Box It Up!  Your challenge is to create some sort of altered box. You can create a box from scratch, or you can alter a pre-made box. Your box can be made of paper, wood, chipboard, plastic, or metal. As long as you dig into your hoard to decorate a box, you have met the challenge requirements! The box does not have to be used as a can be used as home decor or for any purpose you can imagine. Hope you can hop over to the blog at Craft Hoarders Anonymous and join the fun!

For this challenge I decided to alter a old cell phone box that I was hanging onto, I am so glad I kept it because it was perfect for this challenge.

The materials that I used to alter this box are Graphic 45 Twas The Night Before Christmas. Spellbinders Die Layered Poinsettia. Memory Box Die Fabulous Phlox.  Martha Stewart Punch Branch.

Hope you all like the finished project!  Happy Crafting!
