altered box - back to school

Hello everyone!  Hope you had a great weekend.
Ok... so if you have been following my blog you will know that I am more of a scrap-booker and card maker.  I haven't made too many altered items... but I thought that i would make an exception for a couple of challenges and some fancy pants paper that i had left over from last Septembers Scaptastic club kit.

I started out with a box from the dollar store... I actually really like the checkered red top of the box
 I wasn't too keen on the flowers... well for a school box that is
 Added some fanny pants paper some embellishments...
and  voila.. a beautiful box for school items
 some close ups below on the embellishments and paper used 

 I was inspired by the below challenges to make this box
