I started keeping granola boxes, snack boxes, and even toilet paper rolls; I was on the look out to structure my bills and saw the idea to make a mail organizer. My goal was to use recycle materials and add a little travel decor to my office. I have some travel blog posts and I really want the chance to see other places – thus I am on the market for a new vehicle. For my project, I used a Debbie cupcake packaging box, a 1963 Life magazine (in, some kraft paper, and of course glue and scissors. Next time I’ll make some homemade mod podge!
- trace out where you’ll cut with scissors, cut the cardboard box.
- Cut out pictures from a magazine and kraft paper to fit inside the box, then glue it all on.
- Hang to dry
I love how it came out. Tolls are related to my job, and I also want to travel more so it matches perfectly. It’s also part of my vision board – which I’ll go into my next post but basically having the image of a old fashioned truck reminded me of the freedom that came with owning a reliable car. The world “TRAVEL” in bold print.
