11  Smoked Salmon Wooden Box Recrafted into a Decoupaged Stationary Box in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by carmencrafter on: May 17, 2009 02:54:18 PM
Every Christmas, I search the stores for smoked salmon.  This year, I found some and it came in a fabulous wood box with a sliding lid.  The box had a beautifully painted picture of a salmon on the front.  I really wish I had taken a "before and after" picture of the box, but I didn't, so you will have to use your imagination  Anyhoo, I thought to myself, "There has to be something you can do with that box".  I finally decided to create a box to hold stationary, letters, and pictures. 

Here is my new box!! 

I used gift wrapping paper with a rose pattern to decoupage the outside of the box and used scrapbooking paper for the inside.  The "gold" edging was done with a gold paint pen and I glued a beautiful silk flower to the top.  I sealed my decoupage work with some polyurethane. 

This is a picture of the back of the box, so you can get an idea of what it originally looked like.

Let me know what you think of my box!!

12  Uniform Shirt repurposed into a pillow in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: Reconstructed by carmencrafter on: May 17, 2009 02:33:57 PM
I recently graduated from nursing school. (yaaaayyyy!!!!)  Grin
I wanted to turn my nursing uniform shirt into something else, so I decided to create a souvenir pillow for my bed. 

This is the shirt

And this is my new pillow. 
I included my school's embroidered logo, the original buttons, and one of the pockets on the front.

The back of the pillow was made using the pleated section on the back of the shirt. 

I hope you like my pillow as much as I do!  Let me know what you think.
