I made a Scooby Doo box for the Crayola Swap to house the all the crayons I remelted. I found a fun image of Scooby Doo in one of those coloring book websites and traced that onto some black paper. I then colored him with color pencils and glued that onto the lid. I covered the sides of the lid with strips of the same black paper and painted the rest of the box with blue acrylic. Finally I applied sealant to the entire box and lid to give it that finished, shiny look.

Here's the result!

The finished box:

Thanks for looking!

I'm a Scooby fan and I love it.  He looks like a happy dog.  And the colors are perfect.  Nice job.

Basically, the sealant/gloss finish I applied over the paper and the drawing made it look all shiny and also a lot thicker than paper! I applied two layers and also used a heavy paper (cardstock) to begin with.

Hope that helps!

Dangerously clever and resourceful.
