Gift Wrapping with ToGo Boxes Altered with Mod Podge

to go box gift wrapping ToGo boxes are one of my favorite ways of gift wrapping.  The boxes are inexpensive and small making them perfect for little gifts.  To alter them with Mod Podge it is super easy!  You just need a little paper and Mod Podge.

altered to go box with mod podge

Begin by trimming your paper to fit the front of the box.

Apply Mod Podge to the back of the paper and to the front of the box.

Place the paper on the front of the box and smooth any wrinkles with your fingers.

Allow to dry and then top-coat with more Mod Podge.

Add more embellishments!  For this design I added a little rick-rack scarf, some snowflake trim and some snowflake rhinestones.
