Little Boxes

A few years ago, a local altered artists group got together for a play date, which is always fun! Thanks to Michelle Lum Ho sharing her know how and for guiding us in the process.

We created little ‘shrines’ using box parts. Everyone’s ideas were so unique and different. Here are a couple of little shrines that I created.

Bonnie Lassie began from a purple jewelry box bottom, which measured 2.25 x 8.25 inches (approximately 5.7 x 20.9 centimeters). Special paper, lightweight bookboard (chipboard), images, tuille, lace and bits of this and that all went into the creation of this piece.1 bonnielassieinsideThe little blue Voyage/Enjoy Life shrine began from a matchbox bottom, measuring 1.75 x 2 inches (approx 4.4 x 5 centimeters)

1 voyage

it was fun tucking little bits of this and that into my matchbox shrine along with an old photo booth photo on the left that I collaged onto a tiny playing card1 voyageinside
