Redoing my daughter's room: Part II

Well, I loved the plaques I made to hang above her bed yesterday, so I turned my attention to some gift boxes I had saved for the last few years. They were blue polka dots and stripes (for a boy), so utilizing the papers I bought, I made them match the other future decor of her room. The way I have them, I can stack them or put them next to each other with different parts of the patterned papers showing to match the room. Lots of mod podge + hot glue = boxes ;)

Before: (okay, the dots are what you're looking at - I forgot to take the before picture til I was almost done with the last box!)


Box 1

Box 2:

And Box 3: Any suggestions for what word(s) to put on there?

Have a great Wednesday everyone!
