so easy, a quick project for a lazy afternoon!
This is a simple box made from recycled cardboard. It is very simple to make, and afternoon to spare, between a nap and a good book. This is a great project for children as well. Make the box as big or small you want to. Mine is 1.25"x 3"x 4.25" approximately.
using either mod podge, acrylic gel medium (what i used), or simple white glue and water, decoupage pieces of the paper to the entire box.
when using paper for paper mache projects, make sure you tear the paper, as opposed to cutting it with scissors. the raw edges will allow for a seamless coverage. press the wet paper to the surface and remove air bubbles.
tear tissue paper and apply to create a design. let dry thoroughly.
alternatively, you can let dry and use acrylic/craft paints to decorate.
