Altered Box

Another trash turned to treasure.  I saved the box before it went out in the garbage and viola!  a total transformation.
I played with some scraps from Inkido and lots of Inkido blooms.  I should be saying Papercraft Scandinavia instead.  Inkido united with Lady Bug & friends.com.  Its a great union indeed and I'm sure my Scandinavian friends will cross the border very soon enough!  Check out the site!
Now, housing my threads

Thanks to my dear friend, Audrey for pointing out to me about Lessology.  They are having a DT call right now.  I love to turn trashes into artsy treasures.  I love to think green and at the same time helping Mother Nature with my craft!

Thanks for the visit and before you throw things out,  imagine what you can do with it first! 
Hugs, Jona

What an adorable box, Jona! Love that vintage image and love all those flowers. And I so agree with you about re-purposing old items instead of throwing them out. Have you checked out the new challenge blog called LESSology yet? It's just getting started, but is all about recycling, re-using, and going green. They are holding a DT call right now for one more spot. You sound perfect for it! :)
