Hello crafty friends, I would like to share with you my altered mixed media treasure box.

I was inspired to create this treasure box by the wonderful CSI files

I had so much fun altering this little wooden box. It was not only so much fun but also so easy.

These little treasure boxes make great gifts, jewelry boxes, and great project to share with the kids

My first step was to adhere some scrap-booking paper all around the box,

then with some black acrylic paint I painted the inside of my box. I also used some white, yellow, and pink acrylic paints to distress the box all around.

With the white acrylic paint I painted all my chipboard pcs.

I turned the frame chippies into a secret journaling area by adhering some of the same scrapbook paper and

inside the lid I used a sentiment and flower for embellishment.

I also added some small feet to my box.

I embellished the top of my box with some chippies, flowers, twine and a metal embellishment.

I hope I have inspired you to create a fabulous treasure box.

Here are chippies I used from the shop
