Make It: Easter Gift Box
I heart papier-mâché boxes! They are inexpensive and can be altered in so many different ways. This box was painted, glittered, mod podge and hot glued all for an Easter style box perfect for tucking little chocolates, soaps or gifts inside.

2. Paint the lid of the box with 2 coats of fresh foliage paint. Paint the lid with 2 coats of extreme glitter peridot. Allow for dry time in between coats. Paint the base of the box with metallic rose paint.
