When a 3" x 4" box costs $168, like the Carina box above, it might not fit in the budget. Nadia went a different direction and created her own version at home, for much, much, much, much less than the original. You can see the result after the jump.
Can you see the difference from here? I say job well done.
To recreate the Carina, she used an unfinished box from the craft store, gold leaf, paint, varnish, felt, and good 'ol Modge Podge. You can see how she did it in detail, over at Preciously Me.
