Vintage Soap Box DIY

I wanted a vintage laundry soap container for my laundry room makeover, I decided to make one out of an empty cereal box, here's how I did it.

Cardboard box, such as a cereal or cracker box
Mod Podge
Sponge Brush
Print outs of vintage soap boxes, found online (search in google images for vintage soap)

Step 1
 Glue the box top flaps down using either Mod Podge or hot glue. Working one side at a time cover with glue, add paper making sure to remove wrinkles and press excess paper around corners. Let Dry

Step 2


  1. That is so neat! A few years ago I was in a radio show that had the old commercials intact. I was in the commercial for Lux Flakes, and a friend of mine actually found online and bought a real vintage unopened box of them for me. I still have it on my bookshelves. I love things like this, and it's a great less expensive way to have the same look!

  2. Google "vintage soap". How simple. By golly, you are a GENIUS! (and I thought I had Google'd everything and never thought of this - THANK YOU!!!!)

  3. cute. I actually really really like this... thanks for the inspiration.

  4. Love this! I just put this up on the Mod Podge Rocks! Facebook group as a link!
