I got these boxes last month. I liked the way they looked and figured I could paint something on them to make them a little nicer.
But when I took off the shrink wrap and opened the boxes up. They were BLACK on the inside. I don't know if that has something to do with them being photo boxes, but I have other photoboxes that are not black on the inside.
So obviously, I don't want to give them out like this because Black is too depressing. So, the question is, what do I do with these boxes?
I am considering maybe some fabric? If I used fabric, how would I attach it? With my glue gun? would that work or would it come apart later on, especially if the reciever of the box removes items from it on a regular basis, would it come loose?
Any other suggestions would be wonderful.
Generally, I have been trying to steer away from rectangle boxes because of their coffin like shape. However, when I got my heartshaped box from the hospital, I felt it looked like a coffin too as my husband carried it on our way out of the hospital. So I am not sure if using rectangle boxes is really a big deal. What do you all think?
If I could get enough local volunteers, I might steal Liz's (A Small Victory) idea for having a box decorating party. I think that would be not only productive, but also a lot of fun!
If you are local, and are interested in something like this, give me a shout.
