So i first saw this done by lzepeda (https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=258974.msg2897736#msg2897736), i thought it was a great idea so i made one for my pups, because i love them Cheesy. So i went to michaels today, after going to 2 thrift stores and not really finding a box i really liked, and bought one for 5 bucks. also bought a few colors of paint (i had some at home also), some new brushes and 2 sheets of scrapbooking paper. total cost $14.36. i love it, its nice to have a cute place to put thier toys.

And an action shot of my sweet little clutch, even though he isn't really little anymore

I love it! Thats so cute! And I love the idea of using the scrapbook paper! I can do that to make my kids toyboxes match their rooms! Great idea!

yea i really couldn't think of any other way to do it. i think i should probably use some clear sealer over it but idk. only thing i didn't like about using the paper is the inevitable glue wrinkle.

so you glued the paper on with glue and then used sealer on top of it? this is really cool. i want to buy a toy box for my guys but after seeing your home-made ones i am inspired. Smiley

I would love to do a personal swap!  I can sew, knit, and crochet.  I have a 9 year old who loves to do swaps as well so we can do a mommy/daughter swap package. Smiley

yea i just used UHU all purpose twist and glue from Michaels. it worked pretty well, went on smooth, and i had pretty minimal wrinkles. I might have smoothed them out a little better had i not had almost a whole bottle of wine by that point. lol. I haven't sealed it yet, but probably will even though its holding up perfectly without it. it was a really easy like 2 hour project, including "basically" drying time...i'm impatient.
