Hello, G45ers!

With just one more day to enter our #G45OffthePage - February Challenge, we have an incredible Tool Caddy to inspire your altered art projects.  This garden toolbox has been created by Brand Ambassador, Sandi Nagel using our Flutter paper collection and Rose Bouquet flower sets.  This caddy comes complete with a Thank You card and is ready to light up the recipients life.  So grab your papers and let's have some fun!  



Graphic 45 Flutter Collection Altered Tool Box

By Sandi Nagel


“Hello, my paper crafting friends! Today I'm sharing this beautifully altered toolbox. 



When I saw this cute blue toolbox in the Target dollar spot, I knew that it would be perfect for my #G45offthepage project!



I altered this toolbox as part of a thank you gift for a special lady.  This toolbox will hold several seed packets of native Texas plants and flowers.



To make these cute treat boxes, I used the back covers of my Graphic 45 8x8 paper pads. Click here to check out my tutorial for these beauties.

I also made this cute and easy card, using Graphic 45 Flutter 12x12 papers.



The card and seed packets will fit nicely in my altered toolbox!



I decided to add some Graphic 45 Brass Door Pulls and Red and Purple Roses to embellish the sides.



The front was embellished with Graphic 45 Stickers from the Flutter Collection and metals from my stash.



I've put together a quick project share video that walks you through this altered toolbox.  While you're watching, subscribe to my youtube channel if you haven't already done so.  In my channel, I focus on paper crafting project shares and tutorials. Enjoy and Happy Paper Crafting!" ~Sandi
