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.

Nice job on this! I love the shape of the box that you used and its pretty awesome that you used the text from the book to cover it as well as pictures.

2)you made such a cute box!!

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.
