Awhile back, I posted 12 ideas for using completed coloring pages. Here's Idea #13: Turn plain packaging into a themed gift box! Affiliate links below.
Coloring Book Cactus Gift Box
- gift box
- Folk Art Licorice paint
- Folk Art Extreme Glitter
- Love Grows coloring book
- Prismacolor markers
- microtip scissors
- Mod Podge
Paint the gift box with at least one coat of Licorice paint, allowing drying time between coats. Add a thin coat of Extreme Glitter in a matching color (black, hologram, etc) to give it some shine.
Meanwhile, remove the "Every Day is a New Adventure" page from the coloring book.
Color the image with alcohol-based markers. Use the microtip scissors to carefully cut out the image.
Use a foam brush to put a thin coat of Mod Podge onto the box lid. I used matte. Carefully press the cut-out image onto the box, then add a thin coat of Mod Podge on top (the colors won't run since they're alcohol-based). When it is dry, add at least one more coat of Mod Podge.
Fill the box with a fun surprise. I used gold-foil Rolos for the photo, but when I actually send the gift, it will be filled with some cactus-themed goodies. Here are a few fun ideas:
