Altered Art Caddy

What had happen was.....I went to Aldi's to pick up a few items for a salad.  I saw the empty seasoning box and ding ding....I saw an opportunity for a project!  Could it be an Altered Art Caddy? What will I put in it?  How can I alter it?  While waiting in line the answers came to me and I went back and got another one.  This is my project for this month. Since it's for my scraproom, I made it match my red/white/black decor.  Now let me  show you how I made it happen.
Wish I could fit all my altered products in this caddy.

This is the box that captured my eye.

Gesso was applied on the outside.

I went to my stash of red/black/white scraps.  Now you see why I can't throw those scraps away. lol

Inside painted red and scraps applied with Mod Podge on the outside. Black paper is added to the bottom.

White paint with chicken wire dabbled on the inside

Stickles applied to the crown.  Maybe red would have stood out more.  The stamp, die cut, and bling crown were all RAKs from my  scrappy friends. 

A strip of cardstock applied to the front with a piece of lace I found.  Mini roses were added to the side to give it color.

Back view...Did you noticed the altered binder clips?  Thought they would be good to hold notes or projects.

I SO miss Archivers.  Do you see the embellished  letter "P"?

Oh the possibilities!  I haven't gotten this mixed media quite just right.  I think I'm afraid to get messy, but I'll try again on my next box using a variety of colors.  Thanks for stopping by!  Love to hear what you think about it.
