Cute Decorative Box

I LOVE Clearance items.  What can I say...I'm a sucker for a good deal.  My craft room is jammed full of awesome things I've picked up on clearance with the intent to modify in some crafty way.

So when I saw these two little guys in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby for somewhere around $1, I couldn't resist their potential to be cute little office accessories:


They're meant for pictures, but I'm not really the 'have photos out and about' kind of girl.  So I came up with a better option:


I picked out some cute paper...


Traced paper box that came inside the cube, then used my trusty bone folder to make my nice fold lines.


Then I simply folded up the box and popped it back in it's little acrylic shell!

It's a really simple project and it looks so nice next to my computer with all my other bright green goodies!

Anyone else nab any great clearance goodies recently?

  1. Hello. I'm Googling for these Paper Studio acrylic blocks and your blog popped up. I'd bought 16 of these from Hobby Lobby a few years ago for a specific project. Now I'm needing at least one more. But they are discontinued, apparently. Would you be interested in selling your block(s)?
