This is the last practically-the-same-as-everything-else thing I post, I promise.
This wasn't actually meant to be a project for the blog really, but as I was doing it I decided it should be.
Only because it's pretty.
And I crave attention apparently.
(why else do I have a blog?)
I mean, wait, what?
- paper mache box (those little ones you find at a craft store)
- all-purpose paint (I used Martha Stewart brand)
- metallic pen
- paint box and let dry
- with metallic pen, draw vertical, parallel lines around bottom of box (leave lid plain)
- fill in hashmarks in alternating directions around box (see photos)
I'm using it as a little gift box, but it could be used as anything really.
A jewelry box!
A sewing kit!
A place to hide a treasure map!
Or, you know, whatever.
