I embellished this 2 drawer box I found at AC Moore for a gift for my oldest dd's friend. I have a ton of classic Chatterbox papers and their light weight makes it easier for me to work with when using Mod Podge.
I painted the entire box with 3 coats of white paint, letting each coat dry in between. Then I adhered the papers to the box. Then I sealed the box with 3 coats of Mod Podge, also letting it dry in between coats.
I debated about lining the inside of the drawers and finally decided to do it since we figured it would make a nice jewelry box. I measured the inside and cut 2 pieces of felt. I adhered the felt to the bottom of the box with Fabri-tac.
One of dd's hobbies is beading. She likes to make her own jewelry, especially earrings. So she is making some jewelry for her friend. The following are 2 of the earrings she has already made. For the first pair she was inspired to make a pair using all of the colors in the striped paper.
This pair is all pink since that is her friend's favorite color.
