Just in time for Halloween, the theme of this box is masks. The pictures came from a book titled Masquerade, The Mask as Art, by Maurice Tuchman. Look closely and you'll see that each picture is of an actual mask.

In one of my first decoupage attempts, I used magazines as a medium. The lesson? Moist, thin paper wrinkles terribly and is more vulnerable to allow bleeding (e.g., from polyurethane). The cardboard box (all the others are wood) didn't help A lot of mistakes revealed themselves, and so did many lessons.

The number of themes for decoupage projects is endless. This was my first attempt at using actual photographs - and they work great (provided you're not rounding corners with them)! This was also the first time I played with borders. The border on this box is from the manufacturer.
