Featured On: Fave Crafts Blog

Hello again, lovely Islanders!

I realize it's been a looong time since the last post, but fear not! The fair summer days approacheth! And then this blog will be bursting with all good things to cook, craft, and create. Also, I wanted to mention that our going green Rice Krispies Box Makeover (below) is currently featured in a contest on, so be sure to check it out here.

 Ribbons and Bows Rice Krispies Treats Box Makeover
This box will add color and organization as well as help you become a mean, green recyclin' machine!

You Will Need:
  • A Rice Krispies Treats Box
  • 2 Pieces of Cardstock Paper
  • Paint, Brush, and a Jar of Water
  • Scissors
  • Tape
 1. Cut an opening in the top edge of the box. This will be where headbands, etc. are inserted.

2. Attach the cardstock to all sides of the box with tape, being careful not to obstruct the opening.

3. Now comes the fun part! I found painting to be the simplest way to decorate, using quick-drying tempera paint. Put a pattern on the front and back, but leave the top, bottom, and sides solid to keep it stable.

                                    4. To mount, simply punch a hole in the back of the box.

5. Finally, add your headbands, sunglasses, and whatever accumulating accessories are daunting your dresser to the box. Because of the top slit, you will have super-quick and easy access to whatever you put in there. Enjoy!
