Soap Box = Gift Box
When I shop at TJ Maxx, one of my weaknesses is their soap ... like this Patchouli that just happened to be packaged in a nice little box. Of course, I love the soap, but knew I could recycle the box as well.
This probably isn't what you would have chosen to do with it, but I thought it was a fun project. Besides...since it's so HOT outside, this project had me thinking COOL. As in ... it will be Autumn soon.
By the way... this soap is Fabulous!
I spray painted the box black ... inside & out
Added graphics from "The Graphics Fairy" using Mod Podge
I hand cut around the silhouette of this creepy guy...
I put a coat of tinted decoupage glue over the entire box then dusted the lid lightly with glitter...The spark lees even made this creepy guy look good.
I also sanded around all the edges just to soften them up a little. I thought about adding a little bit of tinsel around the lid, but it didn't look so good, so I opted out on that idea.

Visiting from the Bunny Hop.
I also like the boxes almost as much as what come inside... such a kid at heart, lol.
This little box will make a wonderful way to make a little Halloween gift all the more special.
I love my bats... they eat all those nasty mesquites that carry the West Nile virus!
Thanks for sharing at my party!
