I wasn't happy with the overall look. Wrapped it with relevant artwork, came better than I thought, now I just need to buy 15+ expansions to fill in the inside.

Would you be willing to go into detail as to how you made this. It looks absolutely amazing.

I would be very interested to know how you "wrapped" it.

Looks great. What is the artwork printed on or did you treat it with something afterwords?

Had it done at a small local print shop. Printed out in 5 pieces then just laid them down on to the 5 sides of the box.

Was printed on Vinyl, didn't have to do anything other than remove the backing and stick it to the surface. It's basically just a big sticker printed in 5 different sized panels (for the top and 4 sides)

I assume you used the black Hobby Lobby artists case so any seams would be black and not show?

Yes that's the case, I painted the inside with black acrylic, just to hide anything that might show through in case I missed anything.
