For this project you will need an empty gum container:
I used an old ice breakers cubes gum container.
Also, some embellishments, glue, scissors and whatever else you might need:
I used embellishments in the form of cut-outs
from my PB Kids catalog
First, cut-out and collect the embellishments you wish to use. They can be anything from stickers to magazine cut-outs. Second, paste the cut-outs on the container using a decoupage glue or make your own with glue and water, apply with a paintbrush.
A few of my embellishments
I love the woodland theme that is so popular
Little flowers on the back...
Don't forget to brush over top after you've added all the embellishments you want to add. It should look gorgeous and a bit shiny! You can store any small things in it. I use this one for batteries but you can use it to store needles for sewing, loose change, even gum if you do not want to deal with all that paper stuff!
