Begin by painting or staining the picture frames and wooden ball feet. I used a foam brush and spray stain.

Cut a piece of chipboard the same size as the bottom of the box, then use more wood glue to secure it into place.

Add glue to the flat part of the wood ball feet, then press them on to the chipboard on the four corners of the box.

This step is optional: spray the entire project with a clear coat to add durability.

Create a box liner out of cardstock. Measure each side and cut a coordinating piece of cardstock. Tape all of the pieces together from the outside, then slide it inside the box.

Cut one more piece of cardstock the size of the bottom. We made this gift for Father’s Day, so we included a little love note in the bottom.
