My Love Box - Work in Progress

I started a new project, my love box, and I gave you a sneak peak.
I have been working extra hard on it and it has turned out great so far.

Here is what I started with:

After I took off the picture frames and sanded it down, I started on the fun part!
I cut out fabric to line the inside:
And I used spray adhesive to stick the fabric to the box.
I covered the 4 walls and the top and the bottom.

I ripped up scrapbooking paper into little pieces and I arranged them on the outsides of my box.
I used a sponge brush to apply Mod Podge over the paper.
I let the Mod Podge dry!
Here it is, after several days of drying!!

I love it!

I am not sure what I am going to do on the lid, or even what I want this box to hold yet, so that is why it is a work in progress.
But I was way too excited with it so far not to share though!!

*Some things I learned:
Spray adhesive really sticks to your fingers, apply as carefully as possible!
Apply a thin layer of Mod Podge to the box first so the paper will have something to stick too.

I am only calling it a love box, since I got the inspiration from Less Cake {more frosting} and her love box.
I would love some feedback and ideas on what to do with the box :)

Great job on your "love box!" Spray adhesive IS super tricky. I learned to do it outside, because I got it ALL OVER. Oopsie!

Thanks for sending me your link. So fun to see your box!
