Great Gatsby Recycled Box
I've made this box for the Happy Daze challenge which is to Recycle. I used a gift box my mum in law saved for me at Christmas when I said I was going to be making some things for this theme. I also recycled the crystal stopper from a broken decanter. I have used the lovely Prima Moulin Rouge papers and die cuts you can get from Happy Daze, together with the Artistic Outpost Great Gatsby plate.
I am entering this for the Artistic Outpost referral programme for January. You can get their stamps directly from them if you are in the US, or from Happy Daze if you are in the UK.
I am also entering this into the Eclectic Paperie challenge which is Altered Boxes.
