Altered Square Paper Mache

Good Morning,
I think I went through stages. First, it was the origami.  Then it was the quilling.  Next, it was the string art and now  I am at the altered stage.  After I altered those tin cans, I thought I will try the square paper mache boxes.

I love them!

I tried to cover the entire box but it was very difficult and it look tacky.  So I just leave the corners and I didn't cover the box base all the way because then I couldn't close the lid.  The box size is 4 x 4 x 2H.

For the big rose, I used Tim Holt Tattered Florals die cut. I used the two smallest flowers.  I followed the same instruction as I used here.

I am entering is to the following challenges:
Anything Goes - emboss it week 24
Crafty Little Place - alter it
My Time To Craft - with a window
Critter Sketch Challenge blog - Texture
Fairytale - everything goes
Aifactory challenges - die cut
 Cute card - anything goes
little paper shop blog - die cut

Thanks for visiting.
