DIY Decoupage Book Boxes

What happens when you have some Modge Podge laying around and some beautiful marbelized paper and a gold leafing pen?  These cool book boxes is what happens!  This DIY was easy, fun, with a cute result.  Here is what you will need:

1|  Modge Podge
2|  Any kind of paper.  I used this beauty from PaperSource

And not only are they cute, you can hide treasure inside.  They would look great as an accessory on a shelf or table around the house....or if you are a really good friend as the box to someone's gift.  I'm not that nice I think I'm keeping these.  I have a ton of that beautiful paper left over....I may try a tray or something.  Decoupaging is so fun! Who knew!?

I first cut the paper to fit the outside.  Then modge it on.  I did several coats.  I'm guessing around 6.  It dries pretty quickly.  Then I gold leafed the edges.  And voila!
Wondering about that cute ink blot print in the background? Its Jessica's, from the Aestate.  Get it here.

Have you decoupaged lately?  I'm finding an affinity for it....
