I do not think these are painted, but I do think the basic idea is
great. A kid would love something like this. Girls expecially, for
butterfiles. Boys would probably prefer something else. Maybe race
cars, boats, whatever. Ask the kid what he/she likes, that beats the
Hell out of guessing, then getting it wrong. My grand dau likes
butterflies, purple, and pink.
Make the box, paint it, maybe just stain it. Find some clip-art
buterflies, or whatever. Loads of clip-art out there, mega-easy to
find. Print some (in color), cut them out, glue on, potective finish.
No prob. Nice thing, the box wouldn't need to be fancy, or fancy wood,
because you're going to paint it. Neat.
