And This Used To Be....

A Laughing Cow cheese triangle box!! I've covered it inside and out with papers from the very new and very quickly selling cd from Funky Hand - Dreams Come True (on telly again this Friday - details in my sidebar!)

And it fits very nicely with the Die Cut Dreams challenge this week which is:

Recycle It!

I've made this box into a container for some coasters which also use papers and digi stamps from Dreams Come True.

I cut a strip of the paper (it bends better than card!) to cover the sides (the ribbon hides where the seal went) and then covered two card circles on the lid and bottom of the box as they were slightly recessed.

I made the flower thing by cutting out some circles, cutting the edges and then fluffing them up. Really simple to be honest! And then added a little brad through the centre.
The coasters - small but perfectly formed - have been made by using a Nesties die for the image and then for the paper and then a larger one finally to cut the laminated shape.

The reverse has a paper from the same collection and all were just about thick enough to be able to go through my laminator!

Hope you are able to catch Anice on telly on Friday and if you do - have a look out for these!
