personalized art box tutorial


so you know those great art boxes that they sell at the local craft store for only a few dollars. well they make great christmas gifts for creative kids, but they look pretty blah, and when you have more than one kid they're easily interchangeable, especially when one box happens to be missing several crayons. so here's an easy way to make one with a little pizazz.

1: supplies you'll need, printed or scrapbook paper (i made mine using a free digital scrapbooking kit and photoshop), an exacto knife, a corner punch and a ruler.

2: using the exacto knife cut the cover of the art box at the top and remove the blah cover.

3: cut the printed or scrapbook paper to the size of the cover, using the old cover as a template. at this point you can personalize the scrapbook paper with the child's name or anything else you wanted to add. clip the bottom two corners of the paper using the corner punch.

4: insert the new cover into the plastic and voi la!

5: make a few for easy, inexpensive and personalized gifts.
