redecorated chocolate boxes

I have been in a non-crafting funk lately, so I apologize for the lack of posts!

Today, I just wanted to show you something I did a couple of weeks ago because I was bored and I thought this would look cuter . . . and isn't that why we all craft anyway--to make things prettier?

I bought the kids each one of those little 5-piece boxes of chocolates and decided that I didn't like the pictures on the cover, so I mod podged a cute piece of scrapbook paper over them, and now I like them much better.

As you can see the few crafts I have been working on lately are super low-key, so I wouldn't get your hopes up for anything amazing over the next few weeks (although I have a few things on my to-do list before the baby comes that should be cute.)

Wish me luck!  (Roughly 5 weeks until baby #5 makes its debut!!)

5 weeks! Wow! Time flies!...though I'm sure it didn't for you ;)

Cute boxes, what a great idea!

This is perfect! My kids wanted to keep their boxes to hold things in and I really wanted to throw them away. We have all the material on hand so I think tomorrow I will let them decorate. Somehow it isn't trash anymore if it's cute!
