Strawberry cheesebox (box, not cake)

I embellished another cheesebox last evening. This time I used vintage (I really have no idea if it's vintage-but I bought it at Goodwill and it smells a little musty, so it could be) strawberry wallpaper. I mixed up some wood glue and a touch of water and used that to adhere it. Then I painted the bands red. Also, I rubbed the whole thing with a little brown craft paint on a damp towel for that 'aged' look. I'm using this one to store fabric scraps in my bedroom.
I'm pretty pleased with the way it turned out. I like my strawberry stuff, you know!
And isn't my bunny table great? Thank you, Dawnie, for donating it to Goodwill when you needed room in your basement. Thank you, Goodwill, for pricing it at 20 dollars. Thank you, people, for not being willing to pay that much for it. And finally, thank you, Goodwill, for marking things down to 15 cents when they don't move. (Actually, I think paid 10 cents for this. It was before Goodwill was forced to raise their prices due to inflation. :)

I love how you painted the bands red. That really looks nice with the vintage wallpaper!

I'm still loving those cheese boxes. You're a clever one, Miss Holly.
