Repurposing Your Extra Scraps with Michelle

Hello fellow crafters, Michelle here sharing how I repurposed a box to hold a special gift. Having been a crafty girl for 20 years I find that I have a lot of left over scrapbook paper. I have a drawer full of scraps, from paper, trim and flowers. I usually reach for my scraps when I need to make a quick card.

Here I had a small little kraft round box that held tiny little paperclips. I thought it would be a perfect project to use those leftovers and create a ring box for a present.

With  pencil and paper trimmer I got to work. Using my vintage floral paper from the Bag Girls Couture kit, I went through my other extras scraps and found this left over gem strand, and paper flowers. I used acrylic paint to paint a matching grey to outer edges of my box. After gluing my paper on, I added the finishing touches. I carefully adhered the gem strands around the outer edges, and using a leaf paper punch I created these beautiful leave elements from the same paper and tucked them underneath the flowers on the lid of ring box.

I still had some paper left to make a cute matching gift card using the white and kraft cardstock paper, and topped it off with this beautiful little bow from ribbon both from my kit.

Thanks for stopping by…….Always, Michelle
