Hello all, I'm new but love this site (I think everyone does who visits!) I made this box in December and I can't keep my eyes off it! It was super easy and very cheap. All you need is a 99 cent wood box from michaels and a woodburning tool. I just took an image (in this case, a mask of the "Green Man") and heat transfer tool'd it. Then I traced the lines with the fine line tip, and cut out bits of dark green felt to line the insides with. After that was done I sealed it with spray varnish and wow, I am in love!

Thanks!!

I agree with the velvet instead of felt deal. I was looking for cheap, dark green velvet but couldn't find any at the time. I get kind of impatient when it comes to projects so I used felt instead Wink

I want to make a clove box! Anyone know how to do those??

That is really nice! You did a great job with the heat tool, I don't have a very steady hand, I can't use the fine tip...

That box looks very cool!  What exactly is the wood burning tool like and where do you get it??  Thanks!

I got my set at Michael's in the wood crafts section... The manufacturer is Walnut Hollow. It works similar to a pen except you plug it in and it gets super hot (I have a little burned finger to prove it!)

It's fairly easy to use if you have a steady hand like Julie mentioned. I'd suggest getting some cheap pieces of wood to practice on first before making anything. There's many different points to choose from to get different effects. It's fun but a little stinky Tongue

My pen is similar to this one: http://www.dickblick.com/zz606/03/products.asp?param=0&ig_id=2174

 Shocked  I used a box just like that for one of the homemade Oblique Strategies decks that I sent out to some friends for New Years.  I spray painted the boxes black.  I wish I kept a picture of one of the decks, but the boxes were nice.
