Candy Box re-do...my chipboard flowers fit inside nicely + room for more!
So, my friend in Australia sent me these cool boxes of candy, that opened up like a drawer. While nibbling on the chocolates (which were oh, so good) I was checking out the box design, which is in essence like a large match box -- I decided I did not want to toss the boxes (I know, big shocker). I love storage ideas and such, so I thought maybe they would be great for left over die cuts, bits & pieces of ephemera, etc. I cased them first, so I could create a template I can use for making my own (that's a later project).
I decided to keep it basic (for now). I covered the outside logos on all sides with black cardstock using an aggressive adhesive (I use Scor-Tape). Then, I added some decorative paper to finish off the design, and lined the inside with the same. A very simple re-do! When I decide what I actually want to put in them, I'll label the front drawers & add embellishments. Until then, I'm loving the simplicity of the boxes.
When it comes to re-purposing, the possibilities are endless!
Love my Jesus! Love my husband, my boys, & my grandbabies! I treasure my old gold friendships & enjoy making new silver ones. I am a Paper Arts Instructor who constantly enjoys making a lovely mess of my craft room, and then organizing it all over again. I love hosting tea parties, and like all things girly! A hot cuppa Chai is my relaxing Saturday morning treat. My favorite scripture is Isaiah 43:2. God brought me through so much, that instead of just surviving, I now can live!
