Cupcake Craft Challenge – Alter Something

Posted by Jeannette on 16 February 2009

Well here it is, my first Assignment as Guest Design Team Member for the Cupcake Craft Challenges Blog. This weeks challenge was set by Jenny who wanted soemthing Altered, a Chocolate Box perhaps or something like that. Now I was all for doing a chocolate box but that would have meant I had to eat ALL the chocolates first and I’m also sure everybody has had their fill of Hearts for the time being. So instead I altered a box that I’ve had for ages. It came to me plain white with some sort of crafting goodies in but for the life of me I can’t remember what they were. Head on over to and see what fab creations the Rest of the Team have made.

As you can see I’ve made an Image Box. When I stamp images I like to do a few at a time and put them away. I end up stamping again because I’ve forgotten what I’ve stamped and quite often where I put them. Not anymore!

I created some Folder Pockets for the inside to hold my images, you just lift out the pocket and the images come with it.

Supplies Used:
1. Papers – SU Fall Flowers Designer Papers
2. Image – Magnolia’s Tilda
3. Flowers – From Stash
4. Ribbon – SU Old Olive 5/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon

5. Buttons – SU Earth Elements
6. Tools – Craft Robo,
SU Round Tab Punch, Scor-Pal

    Wow! Great idea! I’m going to see if I can make one using an old soap tablet box (should make the images smell nice too!). Thanks for the inspiration, your box is fantastic.
