A few days ago I had to go to the craft store to shop for a much-needed frame, (and as my husband can tell you), anytime this girl is loose in a hardware or craft store, she’ll be leaving with more than what she went in to buy. I can’t help it. I mean, don’t even try to have a conversation with me while I’m in either store – chances are, I won’t know what the heck your sayin’! My mind is busy processing and gathering inspiration. Hence, why I ended up coming home with these supplies. Some cute stuff, like this adorable little balsa wood box.
I started by tracing the box onto the paper to cut a pattern. I did one color for outside and another for the inside. Once traced and making sure that it fit, I coated the backside of paper (the interior piece) with Mod Podge, then glued it to the inside of the box. I repeated for the outside.
Once dry, I just made sure all the paper had adhered and then you were ready for the accessories. I basically just clipped it to the cord that came with the box for closure.
The inside compartment has enough room for the important things ladies—-lipstick, pen, pad, phone, keys & $!  I am in ♥ with the way it turned out!!!
