Paper Prayers

September 28, 2013

Kenny asked me to make him a God box and I promptly obliged.  The idea is to put all your prayers in the box and let them go.  In other words, let things take care of themselves.  Well I liked Kenny’s so much I made one for me.

Kenny’s box has a slot on top into which paper prayers can be inserted.

I did a decorative top on my box.  Both boxes were made from scrap card board held together with masking tape.  After painting the surfaces with gesso I covered the boxes in rice paper and handmade paper.  Buttons and string (or ribbon) make up the fasteners.
