I added some pieces of cardboard in the bottoms of the boxes to add strength, and then I set about decorating them. I used some fabulous vintage papers my friend, Nancy Lynn, sent me. I met her on a couple of the Tim Holtz cruises, and here's her blog: Using Up All That Stuff. She gets the best stuff! She was very generous and sent me several sheets of ledger, music & journal papers.
Aren't they great?!
I tore the sheets into smaller pieces, then used the Distress Inks and the Wrinkle Free Distress technique. I also added some Walnut Distress ink on the edges. I attached them to the boxes with Modge Podge, overlapping them as I went.
I love the way they came out, but they're a little tacky. Any suggestions on getting rid of that?
I used Tim's suggestion of inking sticker sheets, and when dry, punching out a 3/4" spot to label the tops of each bottle. Love it! I wanna do somethig like this for my Distress pads.
Here's some more pics of the finished boxes:
