After bringing the box home I started to look at it with different eyes. I thought I would like to somehow tweak this box to make it...well...less kid-ish.
As it turned out, I happen to have a book for decoupage and decided to give it a go. I carefully cut scenes and photos I thought would look cute on it and started gluing.
It took me a few hours but I was quite satisfied with the results. I left the puzzle in the box (because I had no where else to put it) and decided to use my newly decorated box for my pen pal letters.
So now, those of you who are my pens pals, you have a special place in the new pen pal box!
