Gabrielle’s Mystery Box Project

Feb 14

For school, Gabrielle had to create something called a “Mystery Box.”  She had to decorate the inside of a shoebox and educate her class about one of the fifty states; Gabrielle chose Hawaii.

Gabrielle and I made a trip to our local craft store and purchased a round paper mache box.  We ended up with a tiki/beach/ocean theme that looks pretty amazing.  We had some fun bonding time and I was able to teach Gabrielle how to use a hot glue gun. :-)

Water was made with mosaic tiles and the lava spewing from the volcano is T-shirt paint.

Overall, the project took about eight hours and TONS of hot glue. :-)
