Market Street ~ Ashbury Heights Altered Tea Box Tutorial

    I decided to use the new, beautiful,  My Mind's Eye (Market Street ~ Ashbury Heights), I want it all bundle, from FotoBella,  to pretty up an ordinary Celestial Tea box, that I normally would've thrown away. Since it was Cinnamon Spice it smells really good too!


Other Tools and Supplies:
Martha Stewart Scallop Punch
Gold Ink

1. Measure your box and score fold lines accordingly. I used almost a whole sheet of paper to cover and glue it. 

2. Apply the gold Decorative Tape about 1 1/4" from the top, going across all sides of the box.

3. Using the striped paper, cut and punch a strip to go across the top of the tape. I used a Martha Stewart Scallop punch, scored the fold lines, and inked the edges with gold ink, before threading my red ribbon through the holes. Then I glued it over the top of the tape starting in the back, but leaving the front to glue in a later step. 

4. From another sheet of the same floral paper (Garden's Paper), I cut the same white flower that's on the front of the box and curled the petals up, adhering  it on top.

5. Now you can glue the rest of your punched strip over the front of the box. Then add your brad to the center of the flower.

6. For the top of the box I just added the doily, teacup, and gold flourish that I got from the Mixed Foil Bag.

Thanks for your visit!
