This is how the box looked before the cleaning and painting , lots of dust and dirt!
I painted it with brown paint, which took a couple coats, I used some vinyl that I got from Expressions Vinyl in two colors of pink and green. I cut flowers from the Create a Critter cartridge and her name from the Hello Kitty Font cartridge. I got to digging in my craft stuff and found an unfinished pencil box from Kaiser Crafts and I gave it a coat of the same brown paint. On this I used cardstock for the letters and modge podge it because I figured it would get handled more with crayons in it.
You never know what you might find at the flea markets, yard sales, or thrift stores. I went again yesterday and came home with a bunch of cool stuff to alter for just $7.00....more projects in mind! Be sure to sign up to receive email when I do new projects!
