Marvin the Martian

This project was a birthday gift for my youngest sister. I gave it to her last month but I've been so busy that I forgot to post it.

I took a paper mache box from Michael's and painted it in black acrylic paint. My sister LOVES Marvin the Martian so I found a picture of him on Google and used my MTC software to create him and cut him out using my Cricut Expression. I LOVE my MTC software. It gives you sooo many possibilites.

On the lid I typed out a popular phrase that Marvin always uses and cut the letters out at 1/2 inch. For the rest of the box I purchased some outer space  files from

I made some feet out of clay but unfortunately could not get them to stay put on the box without falling off.

Last but not least I made her a Birthday card using a rubber stamp I got from a used stamp sale. So glad I picked it up.

I think my box is out of this world!!!
