Get Creative With Boxes

Be it big or small, we see them everywhere. Their usefulness lies in the ability to contain stuff! This week, we challenge the Dare Gals to think 'outside the box'.

Do you Dare?

Our Guest Designer is Yati. Here's what she has to say:

Hi! I'm Yati, a SAHM with 3 precious kids. I started this hobby late last year & have no regrets at all (although I do wish it can be less expensive heh-heh). I still consider myself a newbie & have so much more to learn. Thankfully, friends I've made were more than willing to help me out and shared their knowledge with me. And without their encouragement & support I don't think I will be able to continue this hobby. Not forgetting support from my dear husband too. Yes I'm truly blessed!!;-) So when I was asked to be DG this month, oh yes I was over the moon :D! And to do an altered art, that is really something very close to my heart. Lately, most of the gifts I gave to my friends are altered art. It's tiring but the satisfaction feeling I get when the project is completed, that's priceless. True they might not look stunningly gorgeous or professionally done but they were definitely made with love & I believe that's the most important part of all :)

Here's what Yati has altered! A truely stunning gift box!

Our Dare Gals have come up with some lovely creations:

Audrey has put together 4 matchboxes to form minature drawers.

Edleen decorated a used chipboard box to store a mini album that she created.

Michelle dressed up a box to store a lovely set of tags.
