Owen’s Art Box

We’re big into “art projects” at our house these days.  Naturally I am leading Owen in mom’s footsteps… we have chalk, markers, paints, crayons, and about a million other instruments of destruction creativity.  The kiddo has been super interested in his chalkboard/art paper easel lately and the tools of his “craft” have been all over the place.  We needed something to corral the chaos!

I used a blank box from the craft store and covered it in the Childish Things collection from Fancy Pants.  The bracket shapes on top, the stars, and the accordion flowers were all cut on my Cameo.

I used a scoring board to create the continuous ruffle around the sides.

Now how long do you think it will take my two and a half year old to completely “distress” this box??  For now it holds markers and crayons and fits perfectly on his easel tray.  Cute and functional!
