This stated as a 3.00 metal box with a happy kiddy beach scene,too young for my daughter,but I knew I needed the box.
I could get lots of free animangazine pamplets,also had some advertising-so I started cutting.
I used most of a spray can of sealer. I hung it from a limb outside,so I could spray all sides at once.One side is Inuyasha,the other Prince of Tennis-2 of her favs.You can't see the sides,but they're covered with a mixture of both.It's a little too skinny to be a lunchbox,you could fit in a sandwich,but forget the drink and apple! So it will keep holding a pad of drawing paper and pens. It was for her birthday,and she loved it!

Thank you! I still have a big stack of those Animerica free advertising pamplets if you want some to cut up and craft with.Most bookstores that sell manga get them periodically,and ususally they are thrown away because almost no one takes thems,and they take up shelf space.PM me if you're interested.
