Ok for this you will need any sized box with lid (2Euro shop has 3 boxes for 2 euro), paint, paper, ribbon and a few embelishemnts for decorating.
Remove the lid and cut a square out from the centre. Depending on the size of the box, I left a good 1 inch around the edge. Paint the lid inside and out with emulsion or acrylic piant matching your paper.
Paint your box, inside and outside, including the underneath. Leave the paint to dry in between layers.
Using the section of the lid you cut out, glue it down to a larger piece of card making sure it is no bigger than your lid, I used the back of an A4 pad but any hard card will do.
Cover both sides of this square in your patterned paper.
Cut 2 to 4 lenghts (again depending on the size of the box) of your patterned paper no higher than the height of your box. If you like you can ink the edges of the paper. Glue these to the side of your box
When the lid is dry, adhere a good few foam pads (or folded pieces of card as I did) to the corners of the inside of your lid, and glue down your sqaure insert to these foam pads (or folded pieces of card). The idea is to give the impression that the lid is slightly recessed.
Turn the lid over and decorate with your favourite embelishments. I used some ribbon, feather, paper flower, chipboard letters and a little journalling.
