Craft Project- Shoe Boxes

Crafty Project with my Kiddies


Hello Everyone! We are counting the New Year in our house... and this coming Wednesday we gonna have a little New Years party with my friends. Yay! I'm pretty excited  to hang out with my friends and to Welcome 2014 with big BOOM! It's gonna be fun!
What to look forward this coming 2014? As the writer of Wish4less, I want to inspire more people by writing and sharing the creative side of me.. wink:) I hope you get inspired!
Today, well be making crafty project inspired by Shoe Boxes. Recycling? Yup! After this super easy project your not gonna look shoe boxes so boring anymore. Be as creative as you wanna be, you can totally rock your old shoe boxes into cute notes boxes or it could be your kiddies mini bank/savings box. The concept is so simple.. simply wrap the shoe box with your favorite wrapper and Whoala! Perfect Box! It can also save you money buying those expensive boxes on the mall for your notes and cards. 
Look what Santa got for my kids on Christmas? Lol! Its too obvious that my kids love super heroes and Disney princesses. Since 2014 is like 3 days away why not start it with shoe box mini bank. I think saving a little extra will not gonna hurt your budget. It could be some change or bill or kiddies birthday gifts. C'mon lets make that shoe boxes that you got for Christmas and turn into something cute.
My kids love the decorating parts.. Can you tell? Its gonna be sticker galore if I let them:)
NOTE: Make sure put all the sharp materials away from kiddies..:)
Things you'll need:
Shoe Boxes
Clear Tape
Glue
Scissor
Stickers
Cardboard cutter/ knife- I used knife to cut the little square on the center.
Colorful wrapper or paper

Instructions:
-  Use the cardboard cutter or knife/ scissor to cut the hold of the shoe box. Remember be careful doing it and make sure that the bill can fit into the hole.
- Tape the side of the hole to avoid paper cut. If you don't want to open it every time you put the money in and to avoid temptation as well.Tape the top and bottom part of the shoe box with clear tape.
- The fun part.. cover the shoe box with your favorite wrapper or use whatever you have in hand. Afterall its all about recycling...wink:)
- DECORATE the shoe box the way you want it to be.. ENJOY your Mini Bank made with your recycle shoe boxes. 
- Lets start saving for year 2014. I think you'll be surprise how much you save for 12 month period.

Rock that shoe boxes on your closet and turn it into something cute and lovely! Be creative as you can be... Happy New Year Everybody!!
Be creative, Be crafty and Be You..:) See you in few days for more cute stuff.
