Armed with my pile of rubbish...uhm...I mean, recyclables, I set off to make something useful. I was thinking gift box, trinket holder, or just something to hold a sweet sentiment.
Of course, it had to be made in the style of my latest obsession, mini scrapbooks. It's kind of shabby-chic in nature and very feminine too.
There is also a little velcro closure to keep the box closed.
The ring is made from the round cardboard center of a spool of ribbon. There is ample room for a small gift or a sweet sentiment. On the inside front cover is a pocket that holds a swivel scalloped greeting card.
I used a cereal box, the round center from a spool of ribbon, pages from an old paperback book, this wonderful YouTube video for making homemade glimmer mist and a few embellishments that I had laying around to complete this project.
It was so much fun to make and I am pleased as pie that I didn't send more "stuff" to the landfill.
Have a fabulous evening!
