iPhone Box Turned Monogrammed Jewelry Box

If there is one thing my house does not have a shortage of is iPhone boxes.  With two teenagers (I can't believe I have two teenagers) it seems like we are always in the Apple store with somebody upgrading their phone.  The iPhone boxes are extremely sturdy boxes and I thought I could make it into a cute little jewelry box.
I started out with the iPhone box and a piece of scrapbook paper (yikes...blurry photo).
Using Mod-Podge I adhered the paper to the top and sides of the box only.
I find that it's easiest to line it up with one side, glue that side on and continue around the box.
For the two smaller sides I cut along the folded edges and glued it and cut it to size.  I used a small utility knife to make the edges perfect.
 The box was coming along, but everything looks better with a monogram or initial on it.  Using my Silhouette program I created this initial and printed it out on card stock (you want to use card stock rather than regular copy paper so that you can't see through the paper to your patterned paper).
I cut out the initial and used a glue stick to adhere it to the top.
The inside of the iPhone boxes already have these dividers so there was nothing to do on the inside.
What do you think?
I bet you have one of these boxes hanging around your home too.

Very pretty, Judy! What a great little gift idea, too. I don't have iphone boxes, but I do hold onto some of those sturdy boxes similar in size. I haven't done anything with them yet, but it's one of those things that you just know you can do something with!
