Usint the Retro Monster Framed Mirror (http://www.craftster.org/yabbse/index.php?board=42;action=display;threadid=873) as a starting point, I covered an AOL cd tin in pulp fiction book covers.

First I saved a bunch of images of the book covers from online, then I printed them out in b/w in a grid.

I cut the two pages out to cover the top and bottom of the tin

Then I glued the paper onto the tin, and mixed a bit of red acrylic paint in with Mod Podge.

I Mod Podged the whole thing in two coats.  As a bit of warning, the paint seemed flakey in the Mod Podge, but as soon as I wash brushing it on, it smoothed out.  Please pardon my poor podging job.
