This is a great way to organize your mail. If you have a lot of mail, you may want to put a rock inside so the box doesn't tip over.

Total Time: 30 minutes

Supplies:

  • Kleenex hand towel box
  • acrylic paint of your choice
  • paint brush
  • cotton ball
  • clothespin
  • glue stick
  • cardboard glittery letters

Steps:

  1. Cut/peel off the plastic from your box.

  7. Use any stickers, cardboard letters, or handwrite letters on your box. My box is going to be for mail, so I glued on letters to spell out MAIL.
