My name is Lisa Wagenhurst (AKA Craftye Ladye of Craftye Ladye Creations). This is my new blog for my newest creative obsession. I have become enamored of paper art as well as miniatures, I can hardly believe it myself. My newest ventures are collage, altered arts, paper theaters, paper art dolls, ATCs and anything else that has to do with altering and paper. I hope you enjoy your stay with me and thanks for coming along on this journey.

Altered Starbucks Gift Box- Le Cirque

So, we got some coffee from Starbucks for Christmas as a gift. I coveted the box and altered it into a vintage circus themed dancing clown box. My inspiration came from the Clown music boxes that I had as a child, an example of these is here: https://www.proxibid.com/asp/LotDetail.asp?ahid=3280&aid=43720&lid=11384255 This is my interpretation:


  1. What a fabulous altered box! I often keep things to alter, but never get around to doing it. Way to go for creating something so cool!

  2. Thank you so much for the comment. I really enjoyed doing this project, it took me awhile. Now I have a green box that a gift came in at Christmas, I would love to do a Santa's workshop.

  3. This is pretty neat! I love the circus theme! You should totally host a circus themed ATC swap in a month or so!
