Paper Mache Box
I wanted to make something old looking using the photograph of the two German children that I had covered in resin. I purchased a paper mache box at Michael's and covered it with pages torn from an old German book.
I added the photo with matte medium just on the back of it, and glued on the buttons. For the German "nur die zwei von ihnen" (just the two of them) lettering, I traced the words on artist tissue paper and adhered it with matte medium.
These buttons once belonged to my husband's great grandmother and this is a perfect spot for them. I glued on the hooks and eyes because they reminded me of something old. Because of the resin, you can see the printing through the photograph.
