Decoupage holiday card boxes-
Some cards are just to pretty to throw away so making this craft lets you utilize some while stylish storing the rest of them for a walk down memory lane. Allow about 2-3 hours to complete this project.
What you will need:
- Holiday cards
- Stiff cardboard box
- White glue or glue stick
- Decoupage medium such as Mod-Podge
Instructions for the project:
It is important to make sure that you are using a stiff cardboard box. The first step is to cut images from your favorite cards and affix them to the box with white glue or glue stick. When all of the images are securely in place on the box and the glue is dry, then you can coat the entire box (except where the lid and box meet) with a decoupage medium such as Mod-Podge. For a sparkly holiday look, you can try mixing some ultra-fine glitter into the coating before brushing it on.
