Was asked to make a memory box for my son who had lost his dog just after Christmas. Laser Craft Shapes very kindly, altered slightly, their website box lid to one that was more suited for my box. I painted the whole box in matt acrylic paint but just clear varnished the outer lid. I used napkin decoupage to decorate and photo image transfer paste for the picture of the dog.
Bit of a learning curve for me!
