With some handy painting skills, you can easily transform a plain box into dice, a Rubik’s Cube, or a take-out box. So simple! The take-out box is actually one of my favorite ideas – it came from www.aturtleslifeforme.com – check out the instructions here.  All she did was draw the design on poster board to look like their favorite takeout container, then covered the box. Awesome.
