The boxes shown here were made with a variety of techniques.

1 - The small blue and white box in the foreground was made from book board and covered with handmade paper. The box contains a matching covered accordion book, which is a small photo album.

2 - The rust colored box was purchased at a craft store, covered with paper and rubber stamped images. The legs of the box are wooden butter churns (used for doll houses) glued to the bottom of the box with PVA glue.

3 - The white and blue box in the foreground was an old cigar box covered with handmade paper.

4 and 5 - Handmade boxes, covered and collaged, filled with personal stationary.

6. Outside and inside - This was made from a wooden key box that was covered with paper. That's right paper, it was not painted with crackle paint. I added gold leaf, Tiny Words, and vintage looking postcards and letters. The center was created with rubber stamps and charms. I painted small tags and attached to the door knob with fine gold wire.  The inside of the door was also covered with paper, fiber, and stamps.  The initial "T" is a wooden letter that I painted, gold leafed and then applied a thick embossing powder.   I think the inside of boxes should be as pretty as the outside.
