DIY Monogrammed Box

Happy Monday!  I was away all weekend with my daughter at a tournament in Syracuse, NY.  When I came home I found a package from something I had ordered online.  
Don't you love when you come home to find a package?  
Once I emptied the box of it's contents, which were pretty fabulous in and of itself, I found myself loving the box it had come in.  
Well, let's just say that no box is safe from me in this house.  Everyone in my home is aware that what they may consider garbage is a project idea to me.
  The first thing that struck me about the box was it's pink interior.
I could see this box had serious possibilities.

I took that awesome aqua zebra print contact paper and covered the outside of the box with it.  I kept the interior pink since it was finished already.

The top looked a little plain, so I went to my Silhouette machine and printed out on cardstock my daughter's monogram (since her room is aqua and pink this box should be used in her room for her many treasures).
I glued the monogram to the top of the box and Voila!  
Instant cute DIY box.

Can't wait to hear what you think.

Very cute, Judy! I do that now, too ~ check out things that might head to the garbage or recycling bin to see if I can do anything with it. The hubster has learned to check with me before tossing now, too. : )
