A gift in itself

I love boxes! It’s a sickness, I can not part with a box unless I know it will be loved. My favorite are cigar boxes with their seals and labels, they are perfect to alter because they have so much character to begin with. Here is one I made to wrap a holiday gift in…if I can part with it that is:-)

Tiles, silk flower, homemade shimmer spray (from earlier post)

Supplies: Felt: Quuen & co, Chipboard: Colorbox, Paper MME, Buttons: Wal-Mart, Stick Pin: Jo-Anns, Other: Tiles, silk flower, homemade shimmer spray (from earlier post)

Try altering a box to wrap a gift in this year, it’s a great way to recycle and I can guarantee the box will get reused…especially if you send it to a fellow frugal crafter! Come back tomorrow for a craft to do with the kids! Until than happy crafting!
