I found some great inspiration at the Traditions Year Round Holiday Store including these patriotic nesting boxes...

I've been wanting to create my own set, so not long after I found my inspiration pics, I set out to do just that.  I purchased a set of paper mache nesting boxes that started out like this...

I painted them a parchment color and then used a brown paint wash technique to make it look vintage.   I added some red stripes to the lids for a punch of color and then glued a different image to each side.  The final result ....

I had more fun painting these than I thought I would, and I love the results!

More patriotic crafts coming up soon!
