I wasn't sure where to put this, so I'll put it here.

I bought a wooden box from Michaels and painted it red, then used a crackle paint medium to put black over top. I lined the inside with maroon felt and made the dividers out of cardboard covered with felt. I wrote lyrics around the edges and the mirror.

I just found this, every now and then I do a search on the board for Decemberists stuff, I'm sort of obsessed with them Smiley

The box came out great! I love the red/black crackle look, and the lyrics. The felt covered cardboard is a great idea too.

I love the crackle medium on the top, it has a really nice texture.  The Decemberists rock!
