For you treat container PLUS a challenge

Hi all!

I'm so excited to be the person to share with you a challenge for this month.

But before that let me share with you a project I made using some fun Upsy Daisy Designs products....

For You Treat Container

I recycled a scrapbook product packaging and turned it into a candy container. This package used to hold chipboard alphabets. I covered the back (where the manufacturer info were) with pattern paper from the Cupcake line and made a paper wrap that went all the way around the project using cardstock, more papers and ric rac.

To cover the part where you can hang up your box with, I punched out more papers with my 1/2" circle puncher, adhered a whole row of it and then added some stamped flowers from the Girlfriends stamp set. I also finished it off with brads from the Blossom pack and pearls (from my own stash

I used the big circle stamp from the Girlfriends stamp set to create my title block and then added some letter rubons. I added more flower stamps on this too.

a side view of the project.

So now that I've shown you what I did....I "challenge" you to do the same.....repurpose a scrapbook packaging into something new! Don't limit yourself to using just the packaging, you can cut it up and use parts or all of it into a layout or card.

So what are you waiting for? Go start rummaging and if you happen to play along make sure you post your projects so we can leave some love on it. :)

Till next time,
