Pencil box with scrapbook paper

I made this pencil box for my son to match his new desk. He chose a cool vintage newspaper print scrapbook paper at the store which has funny advertisments, which he can not yet appreciate... So there is more fun to come later :)

1. I traced the 4 sides o the box and cut out slightly smaller shapes from the scrap book paper.
2. My son painted along all the corners where the paint would show. 
3. I applied pva glue to the paper with a plastic brush (to prevent air bubbles) and carefully placed in on the box.
4. I used acrylic varnish outside and inside the box (so it will be easier to remove pencil marks-- son's idea)
