It was my first foray into Decopage.  I had this idea in my head.  I made this for the Harry Potter Half Blood Prince swap and I wanted to cover the box with Harry Potter colors but then one of my friends gave me this idea.  I cover the box in pages from the book and use some of the artwork inside and just make it entirely a HBP box, y'know? So this is what I came up with.

I got this box from Michael's.  As you can see, its covered in butterflys.  I just liked the shape of it.  In the future, I will know that this shape of box? harder to cover.  But I still liked it.



and I got some mod podge and a harry potter book




and went to work.








I really liked how it turned out... the only problem that I had was that the lid stuck when my recipient opened it.  But she said that its not too noticible, so that's good.

thanks for looking!

I really like this. I like the shape of the box and covering it with pages from an HP book. Very nice.

Thank you! It was pretty fun actually.  I just flipped through and pulled pages out that I liked.  My husband winced everytime.  I bought the book specifically to do this with, and have the rest of it here.  I have no idea what I'm going to do with the rest of the pages though.
