INSIDE : Learn how to create a DIY floral painted wooden box using whimsical scrapbook paper! A simple statement piece for any room in your home.
Yesterday I was completely inspired while walking the aisles of JoAnn Fabric! I found some amazing scrapbook paper and knew it belonged on this DIY Floral Painted Wooden Box. (And I may have made two other projects right away using other paper from this scrapbook paper pad because to have florals and pineapple prints in the same bundle… amazing.)

How do I make a Painted Wooden Box with Scrapbook paper?
Start by measuring the lid of your wooden box and cutting down your scrapbook paper to match. I held mine up to the lid a few times and trimmed off small pieces for a perfect fit.
Before securing the paper onto the top, I got all the painting out of the way. I used this vibrant green color as a contrast to the soft florals. I only painted the lower half of the box, including the interior rim.
After the paint had sufficiently dried, it was time to adhere my paper to the box. I love Martha Stewart Decoupage Matte because it dries clear and doesn’t have any shine. I painted a layer on the wooden box and then a layer on the back of the paper. Then I was sure to push out an excess on the edges and then flipped it paper down to dry flat.
I love the little pop of color when you open the box, having painted the interior rim.
This little box would make a perfect inexpensive gift, as my box was only ONE DOLLAR. And unless you buy new scrapbook paper, this little DIY potentially is under a few dollars to make!
I’m really loving the bold color, natural wood and softness of the floral pattern.
Isn’t that paper just gorgeous?
