Here are some items that I recently had fun altering. The first one was a plain 6x6 cardboard box. I used scrapbook papers, Nestabilities (Fleur de Lis) and ribbon (attached inside the front panel and the top panel) to give it some personality.
My next project was a black spiral notebook cover. I used Distress inks, Tim Holtz masks, quilled flowers, and a little ribbon to give it a whole new look.
