Altered Book Box

I hope that it isn't a sin to have as much fun, enjoyment and even relaxation as I had creating this!  It just came together so easily! I sure hope you will like it!

The pattern paper I used is the Nirvana collection by Marion Smith Designs.  The paper maché book box is from JoAnn's, the sticky back canvas is from Hobby Lobby, and the wood frame on the front of the book is from Michael's.  The metal trinkets are from Prima and were part of Marion Smith's Vintage Trinkets released a few years ago!  I've done some serious hoarding on those and fortunately still have one set of each left even after the ones used in this project! If you want to see all the papers in both the Nirvana and the Mad Tea Party collections, please watch my video:

I have a couple of sets of each collection left in my zibbet store and if you mention my blog post when you purchase, I'll be sure to add a small gift!

Here are a few more pictures of the inside and the outside of my altered book!

I hope you enjoyed! Please feel free to comment and question.  You can also watch my YT video:

Thank you so much for stoping by! Have a very happy week!
