Whimsical Wednesday - Recycle it!

 I bought some emergency washing powder a few weeks ago to tide me over till I went to do my large shop. This is the cute box it came in. As soon as it was empty ( unfortunately - not very long!) I knew i was going to use it again.

 The box it self  is just under 4 inches cubed.
First I deconstructed it and lay the net out flat. I drew around the main body and cut out my cover . I used a strong wet, quick drying glue. 

Our Sponsor this week is Inky Impressions
 They are giving our winner $10 to spend in their store.

I used one of their stamps for the top of my box.

Coloured with copic pens

 The sentiments on the front are from Whimsical Designs
I will fill the box with sweeties.

 The side panels are just die-cuts, inked and the doily one has a tiny amount of glitter.

 I also stamped the box before i placed the diecut on ( probably should have done this BEFORE I assembled it!)
