This is one of only two projects that I did over the past month. It's something that I've had on my mind to try for quite some time and I finally did it. Let me know if you think it's good or goofy!!
I Mod-Podged patterned paper to a Close to My Heart shipping box. When I get orders in this size box, for a while I have been saving and using these for paper storage. You can really do this with any box that fits paper well but this one I like because it holds a ton and I wouldn't want it any bigger because then it would be too heavy - much smaller and I would need too many of them. I had a Cheez-Its box from Costco that was smaller but a good size also but I don't want to buy that many Cheez-Its!
I was going to just use up old paper but choose this Yuletide Carol paper because it's a neutral color with a subtle design so when I change up the colors in my scrap room these boxes will go with pretty much anything. Also, since I'm a CTMH Consultant I can buy this particular paper in bulk. I figured if I'm going to take the time to do this I might as well do it up as nice as possible.
Again, I would love to know if you think it's a good or goofy idea?
Thanks bunches and I hope to be posting much more this month :o)
Here's the before:
Here's the after:
And the in-between:
I used 5 sheets of paper, one for each side and then one cut in four 3 x 12 pieces for the corners.
I folded the paper so it wrapped a little on the inside and a little on the bottom. Used a cheap practically disposable paint brush, a plastic table cloth to protect my counter and gloves so I could do some bubble smoothing out by hand. I had a sampler of small bottles of various types of Mod Podge and so I actually used three different kinds, my favorite was just the regular gloss finish one.
Thanks so much for visiting!
