Recycled Ice Cream Box into GiftboxIt's summer time which means our freezers probably have some ice cream. If you do, save your ice cream packaging to reuse as gift boxes!

I bought this Ben & Jerry's pint slice ice cream for .99 cents after coupons and paired with a sale. The box is perfect for smaller gifts.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Search for images that you want your gift box to be decorated with. My theme I went with was floral, flowers, and nature.
  2. Recycled Ice Cream Box into Giftbox - choose photos from magazines to match your theme
     
  3. I hand ripped some of the images to give the box a more handmade look with character. Glue them down with a thin layer of mod podge, allow to dry and then apply another layer of mod podge.
  4. Recycled Ice Cream Box into Giftbox - cut or tear out the images and adhere to box with mod podge. Add a second coat when dry.
