Altered Project: Greeting Card Gift Box


At the end of each Christmas season, I typically stock up on cards to send out the following year. What? Did you think I made ALL of my cards? LOL! One particular set came in this great metal tin. I decided to alter it and repurpose it as a greeting card gift box. I'll be giving this tin, full of handmade cards, to a friend for her upcoming birthday.

I cut a section from this adorable paper from Little Yellow Bicycle's Just Because collection and adhered it inside the cover. The alpha stickers and other embellishments were added to the outside.


Quick and simple...Here's another view. Hopefully she'll like it. :)
