Mini Lunchbox Swap

I joined a mini lunchbox swap at the badbabyart group.

We bought the mini lunchboxes at Target in their dollar section.

We have to alter them, fill them with art supplies and then send them to the hostess to swap out.

I went with an Asian theme.

I had a Chinese newspaper I picked up on my last trip to San Francisco. I tore it into pieces and used Mod Podge to apply them to the sides of the lunchbox.

I painted the middle strip with Red Pepper alcohol inks and then dabbed gold paint over top.

I stamped a butterfly collage on the back and colored it with Sharpies.

On the front I applied a woman I stamped and colored with pencils. I then stamped the symbols using acrylic paints.
