Make a Tarot Box

Make this simple Tarot box to store your favorite cards.            

If you've got a set of Tarot cards that you'd like to keep safe, one of the best ways you can store them is in a special box. This easy craft project is one you can make either for yourself, or as a gift for a friend. You'll need the following:
  • A plain wooden box, available at craft stores
  • A pencil
  • Paints or a woodburning tool
  • Scrap fabric

Use a pencil to copy the design of a Tarot card onto the box's lid.
For the box's cover, choose a design from your Tarot deck. For the one in the photos, I chose 0, the Fool, because it's the first card, and signifies the beginning of a journey, which I thought was perfect for the lid's design. Using your pencil, copy the design of the card onto the box's lid.
Use either acrylic paints or a woodburning set to finish the image permanently. Although you may wish to add a coat of polyurethane to seal the design if you use paint, it's not absolutely necessary.

Use pieces of scrap fabric to line the inside of your Tarot box.
Use a piece of scrap fabric to line the inside. You can either glue it in place, or leave it loose to wrap around the cards. Before you place your cards in the box for storage, consecrate the box as you would any other magical tool.
