In February, Tattered Angels asked us to highlight metal in our projects. For my first project I decided to alter this (once silver) metal box. It originally held cookies, and now it will hold greeting cards – a fun way to upcycle something that was destined for the recycle bin. I started out by coating it in “Rustic” Glimmer Glam.
Once the Glam was dry, I adhered acrylic tiles to the middle, and coated with Glimmer Glam in “Blue Suede Shoes” and “Tide Pool”. Then I gave the whole thing a light misting of “Black Magic” Glimmer Mist, to age it a little.
Supplies (Tattered Angels):
