Altered Crayon Box

Happy Sunday crafty friends! Is everyone ready for school to start up again? I bought some crayons for my daughter the other day and they came on this super cool crayon box. It reminded me of a cigar box, which I have been wanting to alter for a while now, but didn't have a cigar box. So...this was my next best idea.

I used Cosmo Cricket's Odds and Ends Mini Deck for the patterned papers, a whole lot of Mod Podge andddddd the tag on top. The tag says "I am a brave girl" because this box will be used to hold all of my Brave Girls Club Soul Restoration truth cards. I sanded down the edges and painted the edges with aqua paint. I was also able to try out my new Melody Ross Chip Art set I got a while back from HSN! I am going to have a lot of fun with that thing, even though my Erin tag doesn't look too hot ;)
I love looking something that's about to hit the trash can and thinking "wait - I can make something cool from that". It's one of the best things about being a crafter!

Have a great rest of your weekend <3

It does look great! I save tons of things like that! Now, if I would just use them, I'd have a clean closet!!
