Recycled Gift Boxes

These little boxes contained ribbon from Target. I thought they'd make cute little treat boxes. I took the label from the boxes and made a little template and cut it out of cardstock. The stamps are from Penny Black - Holly Jolly Christmas. I love these cute little guys. They're colored with my usual assortment of markers. I added paper from DCWV's Summer Stack to the cardstock. I tied brown ribbon with blue circles and snowflakes around the box to make a present.

I'd like to enter these boxes in the following challenges:
1. ABC Christmas - U is for under the tree - make a gift or gift bag/box
2. Crazy Challenge #35 - Go green recycle - whoops, missed this challenge.
3. Penny Black Saturday #122 - two or more images - I don't know if this counts, but the boxes do go together.
4. City Crafter #25 - Hooray for the holidays
5. Bah! Humbug! #39 - favorite cuties

Happy Crafting!

That's a great idea! I love how we can find things to craft with out of every-day stuff other people might just throw away! And using the actual label as a template: ingenious!! I for one would have probably taken the longer, much more difficult way around to make something that fit! Your way is much simpler and worked perfectly for this project! LOVE IT!!
