Altered Gift Basket Tutorial + Video by Prika



Hello Crafty Folks,
Here comes my another inspiration as a Designer with Bob n Betty. Since Raksha bhandan is on it way ahead, nothing came best to my mind than altering a MDF basket I had with me for quite a long time….waiting for it’s chance to be turned into something magical from plain and boring….

I wanted to make something special for my little brothers this rakhi, with handful of their favourite snacks and chocolates in it…..I think this came out to be the best…

Tadaaa… here’s my altered basket using the tender flowers decoupage speciality papers from Bob n Betty. its was a little challenge to choose from all 8 designs I had in the pack and ended up picking this black and pink ones..
This is how it looked before it got turned into this gorgeous basket…..

To make the basket into the theme of the paper I had chosen, accordingly I painted the whole basket with base coat, white gesso….and then pink chalk paint from inside…

I have also gone ahead to another design paper in pink from the pack on sides of the basket…
Nothing completes my alterations with adding a little more wow factor to it….and I did ended up making this gorgeous roses in pink and yellow matching the flowers on the paper itself…

Made a bunch of these roses on one side of the basket…following its way to a little bit on the handles…and its no way looks amazing without adding these butterflies…what do u say?
