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!!
