Is that box sturdy and err... clean?



Beauty project 2

The problem with upcycling boxes is that people think that you like to collect empty boxes too...and proceed to pass you ALL of their empty boxes....*LOL*


Actually I'm rather picky about boxes...they have to be sturdy and at the very least clean....[I've gotten some pretty disgusting boxes...]*LOL*


Supplies: Lily Bee patterned papers, Cuttlebug embossing folder, Crate Paper sticker, Gauche Alchemy embellishments.

P/s: Hope you are enjoying the last few days of 2011 my friends! I'll be taking a little bloggy break. See you in 2012! :)

That is so funny! I get all sorts of weird stuff too, along with the question, "Is this a craft?" I love what you did with the boxes.

Maggi said...

LOLOLOLOL That happens to me too, people are always giving me empty containers and what not. I just love the top of this, you get so much layering and detail in such a tiny space!

I always love it when you re-use something and I absolutely love this one.
Have a Happy New Year my friend.

Emily Keaton said...

Members of my family are *always* giving me stuff that they think I should upcycle. The problem is that I'm a pretty contrary kind of person. I only like to upcycle to things that *I* find or think to save!!! Anyway, I can relate. Love what you did with this, Yvonne. Happy New Year!
