There's a special mystique about boxes. They can keep things organized, hold our treasures, or conceal our secrets. That's the inspiration behind this delightful collection of more than 35 projects for decorating ordinary boxes with fabric, paper, metal, wire, glass, and other materials--and embellishing them with appliqu#65533;s, beads, buttons, photographs, artificial flowers, and even old costume jewelry. The projects include a Leather Valet to store keys and change, the Mermaid's Mosaic Box (ideal for bathroom use), Lavender Matchbox Sachets, and even a Paisley Box Purse. The step-by-step directions introduce a wide range of craft techniques, from papier mache to reverse painting on glass. It's an inventive way to recycle old boxes, and an inexpensive source of charming one-of-a-kind gifts.
