So here is my first attempt, it was an A4 copy paper box originally. I covered the box with a canvass type material and lined it with card. I then inked and distressed all the strips and circles to edge the box with. The original lid wouldn't fit after all of the added layers but luckily I had another box with a lid that was just slightly bigger so I covered that in the same way and it all fits together nicely.
For the panel on the top I cut, inked, stamped and distressed a rectangle and heart, the heart was stamped with versamark then embossed with gold powder, I then just added the bronze heart with wings and corners just to finish off. I'm quite happy with my first altered project and hope to get chance to do more.
