Minions and a Paintbrush

Couldn't resist painting the Minions Amazon box!

Everything is paintable in my world, including fun Amazon boxes with Minions on them!  After watching the Minion movie trailer, I am just positive Stuart would approve of me painting him and the box…right Stuart…

There are all sorts of these boxes from Amazon, with each a character and one with all 3, that I know of so far…I’m finding myself wanting more Minion boxes and wanting a complete set…This is like a Happy Meal toy for grown-ups.

With a sharp Exacto knife, I cut the box down and into pieces so I had flat, easy to work on surfaces.  I added white paint as a primer all around the cardboard.  No precision as I create lots of white space I am going to cover up.

Next it was time for the color.  Bits here and there, just having fun which I thought was quite fitting as the Minions seem to have fun where ever they go too.  I hesitated painting his clothes, but came to my senses and added more color.

But wait, there’s more! A Minions box has more than one side, so I had  another Stuart to paint!  When I started painting this one I noticed the writing on the bottom of the box.  I was completely clueless about the #minionboxes hash tag and $1000 gift card giveaway but how much fun to see all the different boxes!

I am so hoping to get more Minions!  I’ve got Stuart…now I need Bob and Kevin…

I have had so much fun doing this that the next Minion box might actually stay in tact and I’ll paint the whole thing as a fun and easy gift box!  If you haven’t seen the movie trailer yet, I’ve got at the bottom of the post.  Enjoy!

    Also a big Minions fan. Still trying to find a Minions shirt that a) isn’t Kids and b) isn’t a men’s size and not “plastic” transfer. [why do studios think that women don’t like fun movies?] I bought some Taco Bell yesterday and their bag had a big statement on it, like “you could have ordered this on your phone” with a drawing of a cell phone with their Taco Bell app showing on the screen. I have ripped up the bag 🙂 and am going to use it somehow in my journal.
