When our kids were little, one of our family crafts together was decoupaging boxes. They saved them for a long, long time! One of these days maybe we can do that with Andrew and Asher. In the meantime, I decided to decorate the cigar boxes for them, since our next visit with them will be so short.
I got some scrapbooking paper, cool, foamy stickers, chalkboard paint, brushes, and modpodge and got started on one of the few warm days we've had this winter in the hill country. Tho the heat helped them dry faster, I will say that doing this on a windy day prob wasn't the smartest thing. But it ended up ok.

|I'll fill them with fun stuff before I give them to them on our next trip to Doo-Dah|
I think our grandsons will find good use for these. Thx, Scott!
