Let's Order Take-Out!

I have to admit we like to go out to eat, a lot!  So we have a few menus lying around.  It was time to get organized!  I bought a brown craft box at Hobby Lobby.

I painted the box and let it dry.

Then I found some cute clip art on the computer and put this sign together.  I used Mod Podge to decoupage the paper on the side of the box. I recommend using a heavier stock paper.  I used regular computer paper and it tends to ripple with the Mod Podge.  I didn't use the box lid.  I'll think of something else to use it for.

This project we so easy!  Now we can keep our menus, and restaurant coupons, organized and easily found.  I think I'll make one for the bills, too.  Although that one won't be nearly as fun!!
