While browsing the Christmas Tree Shops the other day, I came across these little storage boxes for keys.
I don't know about you, but being a twenty-something medical student, I don't have nearly enough keys to warrant a special storage box just for them. However, I couldn't pass up the $1.99 find, and I figured something crafty would come to mind. Well, it did - mini flower boxes!
To start, I carefully sanded off the letters.
Next, I cut out a few of my new favorite Graphics Fairy images. Using the mod podge transfer method, I mod podged the images onto the boxes and let them dry for a few hours.
Then I carefully sliced through each image where the box opened so that I could open the box. Next, I used a wet paper towel and rubbed off the paper so that just the toner image was left.
Here they are! So cute, right?
Since I wanted to use these particular boxes to hold some little cacti that I purchased at Lowes, I carefully removed the glass from inside the top of the lid. Then I used wood glue to seal the lid to the box so that no soil would leak out.
I put some small stones on the bottom before I added the plants and soil, hoping that it helps a little with the lack of drainage since these will be inside boxes.
There you go! Personalized mini flower boxes!
