Holiday Altered Lunch Box Project by Angela Hoffmann

$0.00

For preparation in covering, I very carefully un-bent the inside tabs on the Jack lunchbox to remove the handle. Use your favorite gluing method (I used Tacky white glue spread thin with an old credit card) to glue on panels of the Christine Adolph holiday papers cut to the size of the front and back, cut strips sized to wrap around the lunch box, the width meeting the edge of the lid. It took approximately 2 -12" strips, plus one small piece underneath to cover the outside edges. When glue is dry, make slits in the paper to reattach the handle. Be careful to not over bend the metal so it doesn't break.

To embellish; use your favorite vintage image attached with adhesive pop dots, sparkly chipboard letters, chipboard swoosh shapes with coordinating glitter glued on, and some of the stickers from Christine Adolph’s holiday paper set. For decorating the handles, use coordinating ribbons and ric-rac cut in short pieces tied onto the handle and then create tags with some of the Christine Adolph papers and your favorite tag maker (I used a kit from Making Memories) embellish with a few of the stickers from the paper kit, tie the tags onto some of the ribbons that are left a bit longer! And Voila! Done!

The thing that I loved about creating this project is, with the beauty of the Christine Adolph papers and the ease of the blank lunchbox, this was a super fast project. You could make many in an afternoon and then fill them with your favorite homemade treats as a wonderful gift for a teacher, co-worker or any other special friend in your life!
