As we were checking out of the Suttle Lake Cabin, I was given this large plain Kraft gable box with bottled water and peanuts in it for the trip home. Speaking of home, when I got there, my new Papertrey Ink sets were waiting on our porch--so I put them to good (recycled) use :) This is made with the Little Lady and Butterfly Kisses acrylic sets that I've been oohing and ahhing over.
What's more perfect is that this is just the right size to fit my altered lunch tin that I made into a recipe box for my niece's wedding shower on Saturday!! [picture to come]
:) I do realize that my recipe box does not match my gable box, but I'm sure she won't mind!! At least she can reuse the box. I added a bit of turquoise to the box because her wedding colors are turquoise and silver.
For ink, I used Color Box pigment brush pads in ruby and aqua, and SU! craft pads in white and black. I LOVE how fast the Color Box inks dry and they hold their true color, even on plain ol' kraft brown cardboard :)
The saying on the front of box says, "a happy life is made of little things" from the Little Lady set.
