"Today for a craft I am going to share something that kind of happened on accident. You know those pleasant accidents that actually turn out into something half cool. When my son was one years old I was in a rehabilitation treatment center (TMI ALERT...for those of you who like to alienate the vulnerable...oh, oh turned it around on ya!) ten years ago. I didn't have a toy box for him so I grabbed an old box and we kept them there. As the years went on (and I was out of rehab) we put stickers over the ugly exterior. Now ten years later, it's actually kind of a memento to our travels and experiences. There are stickers from frozen pizza boxes we had, stickers from fancy coffee stands and record shops. Stickers from events and dentists offices and festivals. Now I have two kids and they both like to look at it and say "Hey, this one was from the time we went and saw Grandma over Christmas." It's a cool kind of scrap book/box that almost has more meaning then our books of photographs.
So here it is...it only took us ten years!
I imagine in another ten it will be completely covered!
This is very easy, you want a sizable box and tape it completely with clear packaging tape to hold the structure together. Then you begin sticking. Find stickers on walks, at parks and random places. After you are done, just for extra effect go ahead and apply some layers of hodge podge. Another idea: Once kids are grown turn this into your time capsule to burry and dig up in ten or twenty years. Listen to the oohs and aaahs as this baby resurfaces!
