Turn an Ordinary box into an Extraordinary Box!

You can make an ordinary box into an Extraordinary box with a little scrapbook paper in a matter of minutes!

For this project you will only be covering the top of the box. Start by measuring a piece of paper about 1/2 of an inch wider than the box you will be covering + its sides. So for example, if the box you are covering is 2 inches wide across the top and the side of the box is 1/2 in deep, you would cut your paper at 3 1/2 inches wide. For the length you will cut exactly the length of the box + the depth of it's side. So again for example, if your box is 8 inches long and the sides measure 1/2 in deep you would cut your box at 9 inches in length.

Cover the top of the box with some Elmer's Glue All. and center the paper under the top of your box making sure that the right side is facing out.

Gently press the paper against the sides of the box creating creases. Tuck the short ends under the long ends at the corners folding them under the long ends of the box.

Once you can tell that everything is working as it should glue it down with a little Elmer's and call it good! Add a pretty ribbon and a tag to make it extra special.
