Decoupaged Box

This little jewelry box, well I like to call it that. It could be used to hold any type of small things.  It actually looks like a small dresser.  I picked it up at a local thrift store for a couple of bucks. It had been painted a plain white, which was okay.  But I thought it needed a little bit more of something.  I got some really great paper at HL for about .60 cents a sheet.  Cut it in strips with my pinking shears for the front of the drawers. After removing the tiny knobs, I used plain white glue and painted it to the back of the strips and then placed them on the front of the drawers. I let it dry a little while then painted more glue to the top of the paper for the decoupage part of the project.  For the top I cut small pieces of the same sheet also with my pinking shears and glued them randomly on the top, mixing and matching and overlapping them as I went.  I added the knobs back on and here it is. Turned out pretty cute. Hope you like it.
