Oh My Challenge

EDITED:  To see the other submissions and to vote, click HERE. 



Jenn has asked us to recycle a cereal box for our blogger group challenge.  I loved that idea although it took me a while to come up with a project.  I am going to be designing with more cereal boxes. Thanks for the inspiration, Jenn!



First I made this 3x4 inch match box.  I love this paper that my big sis sent me. I'm trying to use it carefully and regret the cutting errors. But...such is the life of a paper crafter!


I kept the cardboard finish and found paper that matched the style.  I"ll post scoring insturctions soon.

Then I made this little purse out of a cereal box....and added a notecard. The notecard is Kraft cs.  And those black things are buttons on the purse.



I don't know what to put into the box or if this will be a set or just something to giveaway as I need to.  Feel free to post yoru suggestions!

What a delightful little set...you could put a little set of notecards in the box...or my personal favourite...chocolate!

oh wait,...my godmother keeps losing the gift cards people give her so I gave her a box that holds note paper and told her that after it's empty she could put her gift cards in that so she always puts them in the same place. How about gift cards.

I LOVE the purse idea - I have made the purse cards, but never a
3D purse. My daughter would love it too - for her I would have to stuff it with $ and candy :0)
