The lazy crafter's decorated box (a super short tutorial)


Let's get real. Sometimes you just don't want to spend too much time decorating a small box.  That would be given away. I'm talking about me of course...you know the lazy crafter..always thinking of ways to significantly shorten the labour process. *winks*

First, let's meet the box - a sturdy one I got from my recent stay at the ShangriLa Hotel in Kuala Lumpur. It's the Welcome box filled with dark chocolates that you get in your hotel room. (Well, you know my love for sturdy boxes...evidently it had to come back with me on the plane...*LOL*)

So I trimmed a piece of patterned paper from my stash and ran it through my Xyron Creative Station for an even layer of adhesive.

I used a Maya Road diecut as a base structure and covered it with Ranger Stickles in gold. It's a quick way to make a project look like you put in just that little bit of effort. Because glitter always makes everything look better. :)

Add two cute ducks, recycle an "Open me" sticker from happy mail packaging and the lazy crafter's decorated box is complete. :)

Isn't it cute???
