DIY Instant Wall Art- Shoe Box Lid Upcycling

Hi....
Good to see you.....
This is an Instant Wall Art that I made......
They say, "Necessity is the mother of Invention".....
Wow, thats so true!!!!
I had guests coming over to our house in which we moved recently.....
So, my house isn't done sprucing up (read putting artwork) yet :)
And, I did not have time to go buy any.....so I made this!!!!!
This wall art is made from an old shoebox lid, I had lying around....
So, its a shoe box upcycling of sorts!!!

Here's what I did....
I dusted up the cardboard box lid and then cut a scrapbook paper according to the box's 
dimensions.....
The picture shows the paper cut to size....

Then I glued the paper to the box using regular PVA glue......
I had to take care to align the edges properly......
I let the lid dry for around 30 minutes.......

After the paper dried, I colored the edges of the lid black......
The black color gives the lid a solid framed look.....
You can see it for yourself here......
