CBCC #32 - altering a container
For this week's CBCC challenge, Courtney sent all of us Challenge Chicks some black plastic containers for us to alter. These containers are very skinny and square, but the top opens and folds down in an odd fashion. It sort of folds open like a book at the top. So..... I couldn't cover the entire side with paper - I had to leave that separation in there so the top could open up.
It worked out pretty good - I was able to use the tiny strip across the top for a bow on one box and a sentiment on the other box. :-) The box with the flowers on it - I'm planning to fill it with flower seeds and mail it off to someone. Wouldn't that be neat to open this box and have flower seeds ready for planting?
I'm not sure what I will do with the box with the chipboard oval on it. I figured that since I would be putting something small inside the box, that sentiment would work out nicely. Do you have any ideas for what to put in this box? I'd love to hear what you think!
Check out what the other Challenge Chicks did with their boxes and leave them some love:
