Another year, another book box.
(Last year's is at bottom of the post...)
For the newbies, the kindergartner teachers ask that each family create a book box out of a cereal box. The kiddos use them to hold the books they make at school.
It's a great way to recycle and to show a little of the kids' personalities.
What I learned last year, was that using decoupage to apply the paper is a great way to reinforce the box. It just feel sturdier. J wanted his picture on his because that's the way H's teacher requested his look in 1st Grade.
Here is what I came up with:
Because I'm still recovering, I just used a group of coordinating papers and decoupage. My mind and energy level would only allow mindless crafting.
Aren't packaged papers the best?!?!
Turned out pretty cute, don't cha think?
Oh, I just stamped his name on with rubber stamps and acrylic paint after the Mod Podge dried. Because I wasn't sure which end would show, I put his picture on both.
Doesn't he look like a happy Kindergartner?!?
