Awhile back I switched from using liquid soap to powdered soap. Because I swear it has a stronger scent, and I like that! So after I did the eighty loads, that the box claims to provide, I didn't want to throw the box out because it's so cute with it's little handle and top!
So...here's my recycled laundry soap box project!
So you'll need to empty the box really well, because the soap tends to stick, I even took my vacuum to it!
Next I carefully removed the handles on each side and primered the box with regular spray paint, just to get the neon glow off!
Then I took the dried box inside and started decoupaging it with Mod Podge and old romance comics from the sixties
(oh how I love these!)
I left out some spaces so I could glue on other embellishments later.
Next I covered the empty spaces with some buttons and sequins, I even added some sequins to the handle!
Punched two holes in the top lid and in the middle, added elastic and a button closure.
Wah-La! Now I have a cute and kitschy box, perfect for holding my latest knitting or crochet projects!
I still have to figure what to do with the little green scoop that comes with the soap though, any ideas?
