Do you have any of those little ready-to-decorate papier mache boxes laying around? Well, let's get to decorating one! I just used things that were on-hand. Just use the directions below as ideas, and see what you come up with!
papier mache box
acrylic paint (lime green, black)
music washi tape (or try making your own!)
[let me know in the comments if you'd like more specifics on the products]
The first main step will probably take a small few steps. Paint your box and lid your desired colors. (I have white on the outside and lime green on the inside [added later].) Make sure to let dry thoroughly.
Next, Add your music washi tape & trim it to size. Leave enough room at the top for the lid to comfortable fit. You might need to add glue to hold the tape down.
Seal the tape on my brushing glue over the box and lid. Allow to dry separately.
And here it is with the inside painted!
What color would you paint the inside?
