This may be in the wrong place-to me, they're trinkets. If I need to move it to housewares or miscellaneous, I will. Anyway!
I have been on a box decorating  binge. Here's a few. Old cardboard jewelry boxes, metal gift card tins, mint tins, and the paper mache boxes you get at the craft store for a buck when I run out of free ones. Painted, and something nifty glued on top-broken jewelry, old keys, whatever appeals. I take these to the gallery where I have my canes and jewelry. I figure, hey, if people buy jewelry made by some of the other artists instead of my stuff, I can at least sell them a nifty little box to gift it in. Grin
You can't tell because of the glare, but the one on the lower right is an image of a fairy, behind a layer of mica. The box with the key, that's a small butterfly at the bottom. The first layer behind the key is an interestingly patterned bit of poly clay, cooler in person.

Again, the glare-the round metal tin has a compass on the lid, you can just make it out. Those were popular!

So nice!  I have a box (or twelve Roll Eyes ) that I have been hanging onto for the day when I get time to start my decoupage...I have the time today...and where am I?  Looking at other people's pretty boxes.

You should! It's fun. I love finding craft projects that don't cost an arm and a leg.
