Instructions
1. Tear your decorative paper into pieces.
2. Take off the shoebox lid and flip the box over. One shoebox can be used to make two pieces of art — one with the lid and one with the bottom part of the box.
3. Arrange the paper pieces however you like. Attach them to the box one by one by painting a thin coat of Mod Podge onto the box, pressing each piece of paper onto the Mod Podge, and painting another thin layer of Mod Podge over top.
4. Paint the edges of the shoebox with your chosen color of acrylic paint, and hang your new art on the wall once the paint has dried!
