Hello, long time time lurker, first time poster Smiley
I needed a small box to keep jewellery in for when I go off to uni (tommorrow! Eek!) So I crafted one!
The main box was an old Ferraro Roche box (sorry i don't have any before pictures, I was too eager to get started!) First I decorated it with decopatch papers. Then I coloured and printed the matryoshka templates (from craftsbeautiful.com) onto shrinkable plastic. When they were done I stuck them to the lid of the box.



I also covered the inside with candy themed decopatch papers, although its hard to see in the photo. I was going to add fimo legs to the base, but decided against it.


Let me know what you think! Comments,criticisms and questions welcome Smiley

This is lovely and I know at least 5 people that would die for this! 

Thanks for sharing where you found the templates!

Great reuse of an old box.  I get these little boxes all the time and never know what to do with them.  Nice job.
