Due to the extreme popularity of the Scrapbook Paper Wall Art post (wow! and I hope some people who visited that post try it!), here’s another decorative DIY project, reposted from a hobby blog I had. You can do this to decorate plain magazine holders, scrapbook paper boxes, banker’s boxes … any box, really.
Can you believe it originally looked like this “Before”:
It’s a cardboard box from JoAnn’s. It was to hold a gift of scrapbook supplies and pretty papers. I think we can all agree that this box is not gift-worthy nor display-worthy.
My mom’s first initial is D, so I chose a letter from Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste line. With the copper metal accents on the outside, a copper accent was needed on the inside. So here it is:
The copper pieces were in my sewing stash, acquired long before I started scrapbooking. I liked them and figured I’ll use them for something, someday. And here you go. They helped take this box from blah to sensational.
While I was photographing the box, I had a visitor, one that went on a catwalk.

I guess this means the box has his approval.
