Hi all!
This is a little trinket box I decorated for my partner in the BBC swap. The box is one I picked up at Michael's (it's about 6" x 2"), and dyed black with marker ink. I used screenshots from BBC's Sherlock to get pictures for the outside, and mod podged them on.





Oh, and I fancied up some cardboard numbers for the lid.
Here's the top:



The sides:







The bottom:



I'm pretty proud of how it turned out. Thanks for looking!

Thanks! Basically I just colored the wood with a set of gray markers until it looked dark enough.
