Finished the cheese now altered the box!

Here are a few photos of a cheese box I altered.  

Firstly I painted the box with children's copper coloured acrylic paint 
Then using a stencil, I dabbed all over with blue metallic paint

Then I repeated the process for the lid

Job done!

Tucked inside is a surprise - best not mention what it is as it's a birthday present.

That is really wonderful, Lottie! I'd never have thought about altering a cheese box. Stunning work. Hope you have a wonderful new year x

What a great 'green' use for a cheese box! It would be a lovely gift just be itself, without anything inside.
