Gift Box

This month at SPARK YOUR CREATIVITY is again {anything goes}
Here's what I created. I love recycling! I used a burger box I got a Wendy's and covered it and ,voila, I had a cute gift box!
 
 
 This is the box.
 
I carefully opened it up.
 
 I covered it with glue.
 
I laid it on top of the paper and rolled it with a brayer.
 
 Then I let it dry thoroughly and cut it out.
 
I put it back together and this is what it looked like.
 
I decorated the box and added a gift.


Check out the challenge and play along.
There's a prize being offered-a mini clothespin banner kit from Pin and Tack Handcrafted Designs.
