Front
A wooden box I made, covered with crumpled tissue paper, spray painted black then stained a few times. I hope to make more of these for nieces and nephews this year. I did this one and another at the same time then gave out the most finished at the birthday party.


Opened
It's mostly scrapbook paper aged.


With covers off
I was trying to figure out a hidden compartment but that's going to take more planning in the beginning.

Hinges
I was too lazy to go to the hardware store and used what I had. I'll probably not do that again, too much was involved in smoothing out the holes. More pics on my blog.

This is great! The tissue paper technique worked well to give it an aged look.
