This is my first post, so bare with me Smiley

For my friends' birthdays i like to make them customized boxes.

1) i get an unfinished wooden box
2) then i paint it in the person's favorite colors
3) i make a collage out of magazine cut outs that relate to the person.
4) i put a varnish on the whole thing
5) my friends love them

0402 is my fave.  They are all great, though.  That is the kind of craft that will last a lifetime - a sturdy box like that...  Nice job!

Those are so much fun!  And great gifts- your friends must love having such a personalized, custom box!  And not to mention fun to make!  I just made one for a craft swap (I'll have to post pictures a bit later) but the box making is very therapuetic.

Those are all so cute! I have a wooden box my brother in law gave me for Christmas that I think would look great decoupaged like this!
