I found one of those three slot mail storage things that used to be so popular. I found a fun crackle paint method on the web and used it here. First you paint the item whatever color you want to show through the "cracks." Let it dry. Next slather a thickish layer of Elmer's glue all over your first layer of paint, then while the glue is still wet, paint it with your final color. The glue makes the final layer of paint crack as it dries. This method worked as well as any crackling product I've used, The slot of the mail-keeper are nice and deep, and to my surprise, lots fit into them...and it turned out so cute. (Much better than it looks in the picture).
