I made this out of a dollar store domino box.  It's mostly paint and glitter; the stars are from a bracelet I bought while on vacation on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood (they sort of resemble the stars on the sidewalks).  The jewel on top is from an old piece of jewelry.  The photo is from a postcard I also bought in Hollywood, covered with water-based finish.  Marilyn would approve, don't you think?  (Although now when I look at it I see a glitzy coffin thanks to my mortician dad, who looked at it and exclaimed, "It's a gerbil coffin!"  Thanks, Dad.)   Smiley

adorable box! I don't think it looks like a coffin at all, but if you were to use it as one that'd be one lucky gerbil!

p.s.- if you can't see her pics, just refresh the page. worked for me.
