Paisley Pencil Box

 
Here's a quick little project using the same Cloisonne Paisley panel stamp I used in the previous entry. This time I made a little pencil box using a Lever2000 soap box (It's shiny and silver - I couldn't just throw it away!). Stamp and emboss two panels as before. Cut them out on the white outline of the design. Using a silver Pearl Pen, decorate each paisley with dots. Set them aside to dry at least 30 minutes. Cut off the two larger flaps from one side of the soapbox. Glue down the two smaller flaps to the inside of the box. Attach the paisley panel to the front of the box. I used spray glue but a tape runner or double sided tape will work too. Aligning the panel with the bottom of the box and press. Fold the top of the panel inside the opening at the top of the box. Repeat on the back side of the box. Enjoy the recycled goodness!

I love boxes, and this one is both useful and adorable. Great way to re-use a box.

This is fantastic Michael! Did you put any weight in the bottom so it wouldn't tip? Just curious.
