Craft Idea: Paper Collage Box

vsm2 copy5

Hi everyone!  This is Chrissy with a cool way to transform an old craft or photo box into something new, hip, and unique.  All you need is some Mod Podge, awesome paper, some ribbon, and a clear tape with a cool pattern.  I used old book paper, May Arts Ribbon, and the really hip “Numbers” clear tape from Vintage Street Market.

It really is almost impossible to make a mistake when all you do is tear paper then glue it to the box.  I applied little bits of paper until my whole box was covered.  I used a Vintage Street Market tag for the label insert and lined the edge of the lid with that awesome grass green May Arts ribbon.

As a finishing touch, I added some visual interest and contrast with my “Numbers” tape.  I applied the tape around all edges and seams.

The finishing touch was adding a piece of the buttons paper from Vintage Street Market to the inside panel of my box.

Thanks for taking a look!  I hope you all try a little upcycling too.
