Summer is an excellent time to get out the craft box and make some X-TREMEly fun crafts with the kids. I try to plan a different project or craft every week to keep the kids from getting too bored. This project is one that we had purchased for last summer, but we never got to it. We are decorating chinese food boxes with ribbon, fiber and glitter blue.

4. After decorating, let the boxes dry before using.

We found that if you want to put something on all 4 sides, the best thing to do is to wait for 1 side to dry completely before drawing on another side. If you let them stand upright while drying, the glitter glue starts drips down the side.

The kids all had a lot of fun decorating the takeout boxes. You can use them to put small things in or even as a favor box for a birthday party.
