this is a plaque I bought at goodwill - I painted and distressed it then decoupaged this otter from an audubon print onto it for my FIL



below are some thrifted kleenex covers that I bought and decoupaged appropriately for various friends and family - the LOTR kleenex box is for my SIL and BIL...I am showing the Vigo side cause I am rather smitten with him... Wink



John Deere Tractor Box for my FIL



Library Box for my sister the librarian - used all sorts of stuff - the base is decoupaged with pages of an old dictionary - the stuff on top come from used and discarded books - I even found a book fine slip...I showed this side because it features our high school library...



This is for my baby sis - it is supposed to look like water stained terra cotta with moss growing on it - my first attempt at any sort of faux painting... Smiley



to see all around the boxes you can look in my gallery here:

Those all look great. And that's awesome you could come up with an individually appropriate theme for each fam member.
