I painted this wooden box with all images of Mokona for my crazy Mokona Obsessed friend for her birthday. I hand-painted and hand-drew each one then glossed it over with some varnish.



I decorated the inside with fabric and stuffed it with stuffing to make it fluffy and good for glass things.

I'm not familiar with the characters but I still adore this! I love the bright colors and fun images. You are quite an artist! I also really like how you lined the box. It's a great touch.

So cute! The mokonas and the box. I love that the box is lined! Do you have any tips on doing that?

yeah I'd say be very careful and use a glue gun. I glue a line along the bottom on three sides of the box and put the middle of the fabric down on the glue. (make sure to leave lots of room for the stuffing. Wen the glue is dried stuff the pocket with polyfiber or fiber fill... whatever you use for stuffing. you close up the left over side and to the same thing for all other sides. I folded a flap over on the the sides at the top and glued that down then put a nice ribbon of braided string along the edge to give it some class.
