The Ol' Trash to Treasure fliparoo!

I've had these little boxes since January. They used to house chocolate {although that's long gone!} Anyway, I couldn't throw them away because they were perfect little boxes! But I wanted to jazz them up a little.



Enter my newest obsession: Mod-Podge 
{I've come to the conclusion that I have an obsessive personality...}


If you've never used Mod-Podge before, I highly recommend it! It's like super glue, only BETTER! And it comes out so soft and pretty! I applied it onto the box, then laid down the scrapbook paper, and then applied it over the paper with a little foam brush that I got at Michaels. It goes on whiteish but dries clear.

So here is the treasure!




Once I decide what to put inside of them, I'm thinking about labeling the side of the box.
