this is my first picture included non-question post!  Roll Eyes haha. i've been running around the apartment snapping pictures like crazy to show you guys all the stuff i've done Grin !

this is a box i made for my girlfriend (who i call 'little bird'). it could be used as a jewelry box or pretty much anything box. i used pinup girl pictures from a book that i cut out, clips from magazines, old stamps, these punched out metal letters (made for scrapbooking) and glitter.

first i painted the box black. then i lined the inside with the sticky backed felt. i glued on the metal letters and the little sacred heart. then i decoupaged my images and clips down on the outside. i cut with an exacto knife where the seams were once they were dry so it could open. sprinkle on the glitter, and varnish to seal everything.

makes a great EASY gift with not too much effort... and here it is in all it's glory!

So rested she by the tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.
