Gift Box

Well a few weeks ago I was at the dollar store and found this set of body wash and body lotion. I thought the color was nice, but the original box was ugly. So I brought it home and already knew I wanted to do something different with it. I did like the size of the original box though. So I carefully took the box apart and traced it onto some acetate that I had here at home. It isn't as thin as a tranceparency and not so thick that you can't cut it with scissors either. So I put the box together...which was DIFFICULT. The only glue I had at the time was glossy accents, and for some reason it just wasn't doing the job. Finally I got it to stick together and stay. Then I just wrapped some ribbon around the sides, and added some flowers and some silver wired thin string.
I have no idea yet what I am going to do with this little package, but I guess it is good to have a few spare gifts around for when you need one quickly.
