Decoupaged Contact Lens Box
(Here's Looking at You, Kid!)
Last week I showed you a decoupaged cigar box which I gave to M for his birthday.
Today my decoupage project is a box which I gave to M to keep his new contact lenses in. Eventually he decided not to use the hard contact lenses, and went back to glasses. He now uses this box as a sewing kit, for needles, thread, and buttons.
For the top of the plain box, I used a very thick piece of leftover wallpaper. Normally this isn't a good idea for decoupage because it is too hard to sink it into the surface. And it didn't sink. But I still think it looks pretty.
Wallpaper goes on the exterior top of box.
I painted the top exterior brown and the bottom exterior white.
I painted the rim white. I lined the bottom with brown velvet, with a trim of gold thread.
Full view of interior.
What's that on the top?
A cut-out of an owl
from a greeting card
is pasted on a white-painted background.
The top is also trimmed with gold thread.
"Here's looking at you, kid!"
(at least while he wore contacts)
