Part Two Altered Box Handmade Tissue Paper Tutorial

Part 2 of Hand Stamped Tissue Paper Tutorial

I have to say I completely forgot to post the 2nd half of my tutorial on how to alter a box using homemade tissue paper. Better late then never everyone says but never really means lol, so here are the final pictures and directions for the tutorial.

I just took a cheap frame from Michael's and added some of my tissue paper with some decoupage glue and pressed down to make sure I got the entire top. Don't you just love how you see the ink but not the paper? I chose one of my favorite images to fit in the frame which I have in my Etsy shop at Wotdoin. I love the two girls in the photo, I always wonder who or what they are looking at.

Next I took some lace I had from other projects and sprayed it with Vintage Pink Glitter Spray, I love that color!



Then I just added and subtracted items until I got the look I wanted. I used a lot of Paper flowers from iamroses for the corners, tim holts key hole for the bottom left corner with some seam binding and of course bling, bling, bling.

This is the final result
