My friend Jill gave me 100 candy boxes. These are the boxes a pound of fudge usually comes in. Mmmm… fudge. Jill said she was sure I would find something fun to do with them.
Now, these weren’t simply candy boxes. These were flat, white, and hadn’t ever been folded into box shape. In other words… these were canvases that could turn into boxes. How could I not jump to the challenge? But what to do?
Since my garage is still paste paper central (see the posts for the last month for details), the obvious thing to do was to try my paste paper paints on them. Well, once I started, I couldn’t stop (that seems to happen a lot to me when I try something new). Anyway, here are the results of my playing.
I had a lot of fun making these boxes. I actually made a lot more than what I showed you in this post. For those of you who want details on how I made these, I used paste and acrylic paint and I didn’t wet the boxes before painting, which I do with paper when I make paste papers. The boxes did curl just a little, but were fine once they were folded.
P.S. Does anyone have enough fudge to fill 100 boxes?
