Tsunami Rose Designs Challenge #9 - Altered Item

 Tsunami Rose Designs Links 

Welcome to TRD Challenge #9! Can't believe it's the last week of February already! This week's challenge is to alter an item. The DT members were to alter boxes - either a store-bought box, or one you made. I decided to make an origami box with a lid. I was inspired to make one after my gf Cami gave one to me last year. Yes, last year! And I'm only now getting around to making one! Since I forgot to ask Cami for instructions before she left for vacay, I decided to check out YT for a tutorial. I found a wonderful tut by Bonnie, who goes by sassyscrappers on YT. You can check out her channel here. Bonnie made her box using a 12x12 piece of paper, but I wanted to make a smaller box, so I made my box using a 6x6 sheet of double sided paper. As you know, this month TRD is showcasing the Parisian Daydream printable journal kit, which you can get here.

Here's how my box turned out ...


I'm really happy with the way it turned out! What do you think? Well, be sure to head over to the TRD blog here, for more DT inspiration on altering boxes. Then, make sure you enter the challenge to win some awesome prizes from Daisy herself! Finally, this is my last project for Daisy and the Tsunami Rose Designs DT - but I'll only be away for a month. I'll be back with the DT in April; during March, I want to play along in the challenges! So, until next time, take care and happy crafting!


  1. Linda, this is Gorgeous & oh so elegant! Love the added lace & the bling!!!

  2. OMG GF! You have been busy, busy, busy while I was away! What a delight to come home and visit your blog to see what you've been up to! This is gorgeous... as usual! I love this shabby-chic/vintage look and you're the queen of it! Can you bring it to lunch so I can see and touch it?! I promise I won't put it in my bag hehehe! Great job!
