I keep buying these wierd little cardboard boxes from Walmart. (I'm one of those crazy impulse shoppers so if i see something that says 99 cents, it ends up in my cart.)

I bought a bunch of crappy records from the local thrift department store and came across an original Elvis Presley Advert. Sleeve. The whole thing was covered in his albums with tons of pics so I figured...

Crappy Cardboard Boxes + Crappy Vinyl/Awesome Advert. Sleeve =

WICKED BAD-ASS STASH BOX!!!

The only thing I added after the mod podge and sealer was some tack back felt for a liner and...

VOILA!









What do ya think???

Excellent work on your box. And yes, Elvis is 'The King' still to this day. I was fortunate to see him in two concerts. Something I'll never forget and will treasure always! Back then, we were allowed cameras and I have pictures of the first concert of him that even show the sweat drops on his face. A friend took them with some type of camera that at the time was 'state of the art'. Another friend got a scarf. When he gave it to her he said 'this ones for you baby'.

Very nice job Cheesy
I recently made a box for my friend's birthday that was black and white themed and had the name of his band all over it: 'Delinquints'
I finished it with lacquer because I don't really know about this mod podge stuff...I think white glue and water works well.
If you'd like to see a pic let me know.
I almost forgot, the felt looks great on the inside.
nice work Syringe_Tide Cheesy
