DIY Gift: Decorated Box

I needed a birthday gift for a friend who has everything. What was I left to do? Obviously make her a gift. I needed something cute, yet practical. So I went to the craft store for some inspiration and supplies.

I purchased a plain wood photo box at the craft store. The top of the box is glass, but you could also use an all wood box for this project.

I started by using a screwdriver to remove all of the metal pieces.

I painted the outside of the box white (except for the glass) and painted the inside purple.
Once the paint was dry, I use to screwdriver to replace all of the metal pieces.

I purchased a strong glue and flat backed, blue, glass marbles. Applying a dot of glue to each stone, I started gluing the stones onto the glass.

I glued different sizes and colored stones randomly across the top of the box.
Voila finished! I wrapped up the box and it was the perfect gift!
Perfectly Glossed Kisses,
