A box is just a box!

An old box, just an old box. Found it at GW last summer. What to do,what to do with it? So, I painted it black and kept it that way for awile.  After the cricut coming into my life and my great love of monograms, a lightbulb turned on it my head.  So, I played around with sizing and cut out my monogram with some good ole' scrapbook paper.  Mod podged it onto the box and voila-here it is-I love it!!
