I just wanted to share our craft project my daughter & I did over the long weekend. We decorated photo storage boxes. We got this idea after going to Hobby Lobby. We were looking for storage containers for pictures, ribbon, cards etc. The cheapest we found were $12.99....this was 1/2 price....YIKES! Now don't get me wrong they were gorgeous but I need several of them and I just can't bring myself to pay that much for something we can make ourselves.
Materials used: various fabrics, buttons, ribbon, a hot glue gun & lots of glue sticks. Careful the glue is HOT...lol.
All our fabrics were purchased at Walmart for $2.00 or less a yard
We wrapped the boxes like we were wrapping a package glueing all sides & corners for a clean look....imbelished with ribbon and buttons and WHALA!! Decorated boxes for about $7.00 a piece. ( We bought the boxes from Walmart for $2.99. )
These are my finished boxes... paisley & polka dots :)
My daughter created a box for her also....
Isn't it darling? She is so creative.
The sides are polka dots, too. I just didn't get a picture. :)
We had alot of fun doing this, now my Mammaw wants a few ( a few to her is TEN. ) :) I hope everyone is having a great week!
