Dollar Find Friday




Hello everyone~
It's Friday finally!! It's also my week for Dollar Find Friday!! Every Friday, the one of There She Goes Design Team shares the tutorial of the altered project with stuff where is found at the Dollar Store. You can find the all DFF projects at Jessica's blog, There She Goes.

I went to Dollar Tree and found the wooden box as shown bellow. It was calling me to alter, lol. I hope you will like my altered tea box.




Supplies:

wooden box
stamps
acrylic paints
designer paper
inks
strong adhesive like sticky tape or glue dots
screw driver
die cuts, ribbons, copic markers (optional)




1. Disassemble the all hardware and set them aside.
Paint the wooden box with the acrylic paints. You probably have to paint a few times.



2. After the paint are dry, adhere the designer paper to the back of the lid.
The sticky tape works very well.



3. Stamp the images and color them if you like.
(I used Brilliance ink and Copic markers.)



4. This is how I decorated the lid.



5. Decorate inside & outside of the box as you like.
(I wrapped the ribbon around the box and added the sentiments.)
Reassemble the box and insert the tea bags.


I hope you like my altered tea box tutorial. If you have any questions, e-mail me anytime :)
Thank you for stopping by. Have a great weekend!

what an adorable gift idea!! I was thinking how sweet it would be to do up a Christmas box with mullen and apple cider mixes and delectable hot chocolate packs. Now I just gotta find me the right box! TFS
