Making a Wooden Box



I made this box many years ago when I was in school. It’s not just a box that we decorated; we measured,cut, and assembled various pieces of wood to build the box from scratch.  Once we had the initial box shape we sanded down the corners to give the box curved edges and added a golden clasp to the front. After that we painted the outside and  used a decoupage technique to add the rose pattern on top. We then added a few silver gems on top.  There’s also a rim of blue glitter around the lid of the box which isn’t visible from the photo  but it adds a really nice effect to the finished look. I know the finish could have been neater but I’m really pleased with how the box turned out and will probably make another one again soon.
