I found a sturdy, large box, about double the size of a shoe box, at an estate sale for 50 cents. I am always looking for additional creative storage solutions for my tiny house and this box is a perfect addition.
I printed tons of black and white clipart from The Graphics Fairy and got ready to decoupage! There are so many amazing graphics to choose from on this site, but I settled on all black and white because I do not own a color printer. I printed old, French postcards, scripts and embellishments on creamy card stock and vintage book pages.
This is what I started with - an ugly, but sturdy Christmas box.
I printed some of the labels on my vintage book pages.
I painted the backside of all the pages with Modge Podge and then pressed them onto the box to make a collage. I finished by painting a thin coat of Modge Podge over the entire surface to protect it.
