Use for storage for small items, photos or special keepsakes, or use as gift boxes.
I choose a variety of papier-mâché boxes from the craft store, vintage cardboard cigar boxes I find at yard sales and even new wooden cigar boxes, and any other container that will bear decorating and further use, envisioning the art I’ll print and decoupage to it and the colors I’ll paint it, and spend a few days creating and embellishing, under feline supervision, of course.
I use soy-based acrylic paints and print my artwork on acid-free matte-finish paper with archival waterproof inks and adhere the print to the box. Box insides are unfinished.
The boxes are handmade in their country of origin and may vary slightly in size and shape or have slight imperfections, but each one is an original and I often make a particular design only once.
This gallery displays all of my keepsake boxes.
Keepsake Box pricing:
buy one box for $20.00, buy more than one for $15.00 each
All tax, shipping and handling are included in that price. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend!
If you’re local and would like to pick up your order, please use the coupon code LOCALPICKUP to deduct $5.00 from your order.
