Crafts made from something as simple as paper can be beautiful and fun to make. Since scrapbooking and altered art is so popular, pretty papers are readily available and a crafter is simply limited by their own imagination. Both old and new papers can be used. I found these pretty boxes in an antique mall recently, and appreciated how they had utilized both types of papers for these covered box projects. The boxes are lightweight, balsa-wood boxes that are readily available in most craft stores. A coat or two of acrylic paint provided the base. Paper was cut to size and glued on with a lightweight spray adhesive. I especially love the 'old' photos used for the vintage family boxes. The papers were made by photocopying and enlarging pictures from the past. What a creative way to use the old in a new way!
