I admit it, this isn't an original idea--I was inspired by katiekat82's own project (rather more professional-looking, I must say).  Take a look at it here: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=52712.0

So here's my version.  I printed off some Gil Elvgren pics from the internet and used Mod Podge to decoupage them onto a metal lunch box I bought at Michael's.  A little ribbon bow and it made a nice package for my friend's birthday present.  Let me know what you think!

The front...





...and the back.

Just sand the metal down some so that it will stick better.

BTW, cute rabbit!  In fact, it looks like the one that belongs to the friend I gave this to.  Smiley
