I painted everything black because that seems to be the new white. I took some old pages out of vintage scrap books. They are hard to work with because they are very brittle. I picked out some images and printed them onto the vintage scrap book pages. I then decoupaged them to the pieces.
I think the clock turned out really nice. I put a coat of modge podge over the top after the pieces had dried. I also used rub and buff antique gold on the front of the clock and around the face area.
The other pieces turned out pretty good too. I can't believe that is the same ugly little .50 cent plaque.
I decided to do a few of the boxes as well I like to give candy and treats in something during the holidays. I look for these at yard sales and then make them into my containers to give at Christmas.
All of these cost me just 5.00 to make, I had the paint and the paper. It is amazing what you can come up with on our thrifted items.
