I had this plain wooden box which I was using to house my calligraphy supplies and after seeing its potential, I decided to give it a new lease of life. Given that it would be used to house calligraphy supplies, which included some vintage nibs, I decided to alter the box in a vintage style.
I used Prima's Time Traveller's Memories collection, plus Prima flowers and lace. I also added some metal ephemera and muslin for more of that vintage-shabby look.
I like it when altered objects are both functional and pretty to look at.
