Recycled Container

I made this container for a challenge at The Greeting Farm.  The challenge was to make a 3-D project using something that was recycled.  For my project, I used a plastic takeout container that once contained bath salts.  Whenever I am done with containers such as this, I save them, as I will most likely use them for a project.  In fact, I have an empty metal mint tin sitting on my desk right now.  I decorated all the sides on the takeout container with DSP from Stampin Up.  For the front, I used a Miss Anya stamp from The Greeting Farm.  I paired her with a picket fence made from a Martha Stewart Punch and a very large Prima flower.  To complete the container, I added some pieces of gingham ribbon to the handle.

  1. What a super idea. I bet the fragrance from the bath salts makes what ever you use the box for, nice. A double whammy there. Love it.
