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.
