Lovely little boxes!

From Lova: "Paul V. at the magazine gave me the small tin box that he found when we were at the Brimfield Flea Market recently. It was so pretty and blue that I knew exactly what it needed. More blue! I got two other plain boxes and used cut outs from a book about birds and papers from Paper Source to make them into collage boxes. 


You will need:

Some boxes or tins - I like to use little ones

Vintage books and wrapping paper to cut up - The Paper Source has some of my favorite papers!

Xacto Knife - This one is wonderful

Glue

Mod Podge (optional)

  1. Find some lovely boxes and tins. I like to use tiny one but you can use whatever size you like.
  2. Find some beautiful designs to cut from old books, paper, wrapping paper or find designs online.
  3. Arrange your cutouts onto your boxes in a way that you think looks beautiful.
  4. Glue your cutouts onto your boxes and tins.
  5. The boxes in the pictures are not painted with glue, like you do with decoupage, because I like the matte paper finish, but if you would like a more lasting finish you can use some glue or Mod Podge and paint over the finished boxes.

TIP:

If you want a more lasting finish you can use some glue or Mod Podge and paint over the finished boxes.
