Every Christmas, I search the stores for smoked salmon.  This year, I found some and it came in a fabulous wood box with a sliding lid.  The box had a beautifully painted picture of a salmon on the front.  I really wish I had taken a "before and after" picture of the box, but I didn't, so you will have to use your imagination  Anyhoo, I thought to myself, "There has to be something you can do with that box".  I finally decided to create a box to hold stationary, letters, and pictures. 

Here is my new box!! 



I used gift wrapping paper with a rose pattern to decoupage the outside of the box and used scrapbooking paper for the inside.  The "gold" edging was done with a gold paint pen and I glued a beautiful silk flower to the top.  I sealed my decoupage work with some polyurethane. 







This is a picture of the back of the box, so you can get an idea of what it originally looked like.



Let me know what you think of my box!!

Ooooo.  I think I have this same box.  I bought a box of smoked salmon at the Harry and David store, and it was in a box like this.

Yours is beautiful.  Great job.
