For anyone looking for a fun project, great for storage and gift wrapping (boxing?) - this is one of my favorites..

All you need are some plain boxes, acrylic paint, and sealer (which can be purchased at most any local craftstore)..  


plain boxes:

paint like crazy:

seal it!  (spray or paint, I like spray):

While the idea is not the most original (as all supplies are at the craftstore), you can be as creative as you want and cater to the tastes of a friend (the purple box is where my best friend's christmas presents shall go).  Have fun:)

Wal-mart... Well anyways that is super cool. I am doing something like that for my step mom, except I am making collages on them. I probably will not put up pictures though because my collages suck from the magazines I own.
