Craft upcycling idea - Badge box from electronic equipment packaging

My husband has brought home electronics in those cool cardboard boxes with a magnetic closure, and these boxes are just crying our for upcycling.  I decided to upcycle one as a storage box for my badges and here is the result.




I lightly sanded the outside of the box and then collaged with scrapbooking paper, images out of old books, some hardware, stamps, and decorative tape.


On the inside I laced some scraps of velveteen to card and glued it on the inside of the lid and inside base.


On the bottom of the outside I glued four washers to act as feet for the box.  I covered the finished box in a layer of varnish.

My badges are very at home now!
