Magazine Boxes!!!! FINALLY!

SO, I picked up these babies MONTHS AND MONTHS ago at my local Smith's.

I had been looking for magazine boxes to Mod Podge but they were all too dang expensive or cheap (Like made from cardboard cheap....definitley not going to hold up with Mod Podge.) Lucky me these babies were on sale for $5 a piece (Instead of the $20 regular price.) These suckers took me FOR-EV-ER to finish but I finally did it!! (At the request of my husband....too many unfinished craft projects lying around I guess!)

Finished and they turned out SO CUTE!


I picked paper that came coordinating in colors, so none of the boxes are the same. I opted not to label the boxes because once the words are on they aren't coming off and I don't want to re-cover these EVER. The down side to this project was that the paper is 12 inches tall, the boxes are 13 inches tall. So each one has a strip at the bottom to cover the box. Not noticable in the picture but I can tell at home. (I'm anal about this kind of thing.) For now they will do and hopefully my guests won't look too closely!

Wow, you really are a modge podgin' fool:) You inspired me, so I modge podged a wooden butterfly and hung ribbon from it, so now it's a hair clip holder, FUN:)

I love your boxes, they turned out darling. Are they made of wood?
