Inky Impressions Challenge - RECYCLE!!!

This week is the last challenge week with our current Design Team. It has been a GREAT 2 months and it has been awesome getting to know each of the Inspirational Inkettes!!! The new Inspirational Inkettes will be announced very soon, so keep your eyes open for the announcement.

Now, onto our challenge!! I love this challenge - to recycle - to use something again that had a previous purpose! It could be anything - ribbon, bubble wrap, a button, an old box, cardboard, etc. I had this chocolate box sitting around since Valentine's day just waiting for the perfect chance to reuse it!!! I covered the top and bottom with DP from SU, sanded the edges, added pink ribbon to the side, and used my heart Nesties to mount the image of LiLi's Secret from INKY IMPRESSIONS!!!! This image is soooo cute and perfect for "secret" things - journals, diaries, treasure boxes, surprise parties, etc. So, I made a little treasure box for my niece. Here it is:

Please join us at Inky Impressions Challenge Blog for this week's challenge!! This week, all of the Inspirational Inkettes are participating so please head on over to the blog to see the AMAZING talent this group has!!!! We can't wait to see what you create with your Angelica & LiLi stamps, so be sure to join us on this challenge and post on the Challenge blog!

I love multi-purposing every day items and just might have an empty candy box around, too! Fun idea to create a treasure box -- what gal couldn't use one of these??
