Embellished Box

This box was a box that was being thrown away and I asked if I could have it.  This was a very easy project that took me 3 days.

First, I primed the box with Kilz2 latex.

Since many of my scrapbook storage containers are hot pink and dark purple, I used Delta Ceramcoat acrylic paint Purple as the base paint coat.  I used two coats of this paint and used the majority of the bottle.

I then chose a heavier double sided paper from Webster's pages and cut to fit all around the outside of the box.  I only had to use 1 sheet of the paper.  It went on very easily and there were no bubbles.

Finally, I found some Webster Page's embellishments and floral jewels to decorate the front of the box.
I also put one coat of Mod Podge on the outside of the box, but I'm not sure that this last step is necessary.
