Revamped Jewelery Box

As you may know, I recently began making jewelery and other metal crafts. Since I just signed up to have a vendor booth at the Summer Craft and Yard Sale, I needed a way to showcase my jewelery pieces. I was inspired by an idea I saw at the Scrapbooking Expo last month, and decided to revamp an old jewelery box.

I ended up finding a simple jewelery box, as well as a wooden box that once held soap, at a local garage sale where I paid 25-cents for both pieces. I used some open-stock scrapbook paper, a glue stick, and Modge Podge to cover them. There are probably other (and better) ways of doing this, but this is what I came up with:
