New Play Food Boxes

From Ugly:




To Cutesy:




How fun is that?! Not that this is new or innovative in anyway, people have been recovering boxes for decades, but for me this was a very fun project. I got to use papers I don't care for to make super cute boxes for my girls' kitchen play stuff (and of course now I love them since they look so darling as boxes!) The plastic front of the spaghetti box is actually from the packaging of one of my scrappin' goodies too so a bit of upcycling going on here. I am in the process of creating a fun kitchen playset for them so more repurposing (and sewing) to come! For those of you wondering the spaghetti is just yellow yarn and the meatballs are pompoms. My girls LOVE making spaghetti and meatballs for their dolls and stuffed animals. The peas are the small green pompoms, I'll be making some felt food later, these were just really easy to throw together on short notice for the girls to play with. Papers were by My Minds Eye, the cardstock is Bazzil. The peas were made by just cutting out some of the green lanterns on the other side of that green pattern paper. I simply free handed the titles with a sharpie, no need for it to be perfect. I might punch out some meatballs from either the scallop or regular circle punch to decorate the spaghetti box more. The girls took them and ran so I figured they were cute enough right now ;)

Excellent! I need to cover some boxes to store the cards I make, to separate the ones to sell from the ones for family and friends, and can't decide what paper to use, but this is very inspiring.
