I've been working on these boxes for a month or so - they're very relaxing to make. A mix of craft and art, I felt they would be best posted under miscellaneous.

The Gir Box:

 






The Lenore Box:








The Bender Box:








The Cheshire Cat Box:








...and that's it for now. I'll update this conversation as I create more keepsake boxes.
I'm considering putting them on Etsy, but I don't know what to price them at. Something for me to mull over some more, I suppose.

those are really cute! How much did it cost u to make them? Go from there and price similar items on there. I think they are beautiful. Id by them for my girls. I have there little sewing kits in rubbermaid ones and these would be way cuter.

Oh wow - thanks so much for the compliments Smiley
It's less the cost of the materials I'm worried about and more the price of my own time, while still wanting them to be affordable for people to buy. Like...would $30 be too much?

I love them! The portraits of the characters are very detailed and accurate. People may buy these (myself included) at thirty dollars for the detail and usefulness. You may want to use larger boxes as people may be more apt to buy them at  a higher price. When you advertise them, be sure to point out the detail of the characters and neatness of the actual paint job.

I never even thought about making bigger ones - I'll have to take a look at what is available at Michaels in the wood section next time I'm there Smiley
