altered lip gloss box

Here is another project from this past weekend. This window box is one I got with a free lip gloss sampler. (What is better than free product that comes in a cool box to alter?!?!?!) I covered the outside of the lid and the bottom inside with paper from My Mind's Eye. Each panel of the box has its own separate piece of paper. I used mod podge to glue the paper down and then also on top of the paper to give the box a smooth and shiny look. If I did this again I would sand the box before covering it because the shiny covering on the box wasn't good for making my designer paper stick.

I haven't decided what gift I will put in this box yet--I want to give it to someone who will appreciate it ;) My friend Jami also suggested making it into a shadow box...so who knows?
