This box is first painted with red paint and then overlayed with gold paint to create a richer gold color. Then I have decoupaged interlocking pieces of Italian paper in colors of blue, green, yellow and gold. It is covered with several layers of polyurethane to protect its surface. The bottom is covered with green felt. This box measures 1 3/4" high and 2 1/8" wide. It would be great to store earrings or small objects. Each box is a one of a kind piece of art handmade by me. GREAT GIFT !!
