~Covered wallpaper boxes~














 I find enevlope and shoe boxes
make great storage for crafting items.
I like to cover my boxes with wallpaper.
 Make a pattern for the top and bottom of the boxes.
Use watered down white glue or wallpaper paste
 to apply the wallpaper to the box. 
Use a roller/brayer to smooth out any air bubbles.
This is an easy project, just a bit messy..
 Have fun!

WOW Mary Rose:
They are all beautiful!!! The one with the swag looks like vintage wall paper.
When I grow up I shall be as creative as you!!!

Love the boxes and how you've made them so lovely!! I always hate throwing out large usable boxes. Funny thing... when I scrolled down, I saw the envelope boxes and laughed out loud. My hub is a regional manager for that company. Good to see people are still buying envelopes! Our kids still need to eat!! (Simply Debbie is the one to thank for me finding your blog)
