Batman and Superman Decorated Boxes

Do your boys have a pile of comics laying around? If so, get them into the craft room and have them make these fun Batman and Superman Decorated Boxes. They will have fun getting a little messy while working with their favorite superheroes to decoupage small craft boxes. This is a great way for the boys to keep their favorite scenes, and when they are done, they will have fabulous little boxes to store away little trinkets or to give as gifts. Of course, they don't have to use just Batman and Superman, but they are two of the best superheroes out there.

  2. Cut out sections of comic books that you want to use. Use the lid from your container to trace around the comic book page you want to be on the lid. Cut it out, but cut it about 1/4-inch smaller than your tracing lines.

  4. When placing the comics onto the painted boxes, apply some Mod Podge to the center of the comics and press out any air bubbles. Work your way outward from the center, adding more Mod Podge to attach the rest of the comic.
