Hello people. 

Chirali this side wishing you all a belated happy diwali. I hope you enjoyed the holidays to the fullest. 

So today, it’s all about the gorgeous Decoupage papers and Glue, recently released by Papericious. Papers are so beautiful with which you can turn any waste thing into a useful one. 

In diwali, you must have got a lot of sweet or dry fruit boxes. Don’t throw them away. They can be turned into a very useful home decor piece. So one of my today’s project is one such Altered box and second one is my old dirty clutch. 

See these. An old dirty clutch which got many coloured scratches but it’s not at all damaged from inside so to make it useful, I altered it and second one is an empty chocolate box. 

Altered projects are here: 

I turned the box into a photo frame and that old clutch into the brand new one. 

 I painted whole box with French Blue chalk paint. The middle part is a bit outside which measured 7.5x7.5 inches. I wanted to make it a magnetic frame to ease changing of photos so I cut the same blue coloured paper and sticked on the back side after putting 4 magnets at desired distance. Then I made a stand and attached it with a Brad. Then decoupage started.  There are many different designs in deco papers. I have used two of them in frame. The Peacock Medley has been used as a base and Blue Roses has been used as a decoration to the frame. Supplies list is at last. 

Due to magnets, one can pull out all the layers of photo (Even this acrylic piece along with magnets) and gift it again as a chocolate or dryfruit box and then that person can use it as a photo frame. Isn’t it a great idea to gift someone a useful box which will last long too?

Some closeups!

Now the second one - altered clutch!

I painted the clutch with Pearl Pink chalk paint. Then fussy cut flowers and a butterfly from Pretty Peonies deco paper. Before sticking, I kinda distressed edges with cream coloured chalk paint. After applying decoupage glue and adhering them with clutch, I applied cream chalk paint roughly through brick stencil. 
And then applied deco glue all over.

The second side of the clutch is the second paper of same design, rounded the edges, distressed the edges with cream chalk paint and then the same decoupage process. 

And done!! 

My ever new clutch is ready! :)

I hope you like the projects. 

Thanks for stopping by. 

Chirali. :)
