Today I would like to share a book box that I altered. It's a paper mache box I purchased online. It opens like a book to reveal a niche inside for notes or other small items. Sadly, we have had several ladies in our community widowed in the past months. I made these boxes with inspirational poems inside and out as well as note paper for their thoughts and prayers. The box was colored with, of all things, shoe polish! It gave the paper a rich worn look. I then decoupaged the images on the front and the back. I added a twisted paper ribbon as an accent. Hope this offers a little inspiration for you, too! Blessings to you!
