Japanese Box

Okay so this has nothing to do with journals. I found this little japanese type box and was fascinated to see how it was made, so I had to buy one. Low and behold it is made from a Coca Cola bottle, how cute is that. Quickly going to share it with you and then back to journaling.

                                                    Okay so it is as simple as this.
When you have enjoyed your Coke - I mean Coca-Cola, all you have to do is cut off the top part. There are lines down to the curve in the bottle. Only cut down to the curve or it won't shut properly.
Then round the corners of the top so that it not only looks nicer, but closes better.
Once you have mastered your little box all you have to do is cover the box with a paper serviette. The little red one was done with modge podge which makes it sticky so the next one I made I used spray adhesive and then varnished it... Voila.
                                                         Now back to Journals.
