I like to find interesting unique adds that make you smile and laugh. It is quite funny to read some of the things they pitched backed then, knowing what we know now.

I cut the adds out, glued them on the box, worked any bubbles out and then glued over top of that with a mixture of Elmer's glue and a little water. After the box dried I put about 5 coats of a clear gloss varnish over the glued adds to preserve and seal them. I painted the top, sides and the bottom of the box with black acrylic paint, also sealed with a high gloss varnish.

The box stands 7 1/4 in. tall and 7 in. wide
