Harmony and I had the best time today finally utilizing several of the cereal boxes that I have set aside to upcycle as book holders/magazine holders. I had so much fun decorating Harmony's, using Mod Podge and tissue paper..and then I made the cute flower out of coffee filters, some nail polish for the outer tips of the outer flower, and then pink tissue paper. How fun!!
I made one for the babies room but have to say that my project book holder didn't come out like I had planned. The materials I decoupaged were not exactly what I was looking for when I saw the finished product. Hmmm..I even tried sprucing it up with marbles. Hmm... I'll have to try that one again later.
So..on to the next, right? I have been thinking of all of these creative idea's for wall decor for the kid's rooms because why buy it when yo can me it? Harmony and I love making shadow boxes and have on several different occasions, or used them for scene plots for Barbies/Ponies, etc. I came up with an idea to create something that would coordinate with her new book holder. I used an empty box that our Wii came in when we purchased it in January (can you believe we had it for that long????? YIKES). I then used the same steps for the flower that I did for the book holder but designed it a little differently. I love the way it came out and had to share!
P.S. I also used my glue gun for these projects like I usually do. It never gets enough credit. ;)
Have a great day and happy creating!!
