Do you see what I see?

Inspiration is everywhere you just have to have an open eye!

These containers were calling me to transform them and give new life to them. That I did!

Pop Tarts box = Santa

Ronzoni box = Rudolph

Panko bread crumbs = Frosty

See if you can recycle and re purpose a container to be something other than what it currently is. Get creative!

I made a card to match the Santa box. I happened to have belt ribbon-how cool is that?!
These are all the goodie bags I made up with clear lollipop bags and paper scraps as the toppers.
These are inside Santa and Frosty. Can you see the rock candy? When was the last time you had that?
Stuff them in and close the lid to hide the goodies until Christmas.
Rudolph got a pretzel bag stuffed with spice drops due to the length of the box. More goodies is always a good thing!
A closer look at Frosty. I used the Cuttlebug to emboss his nose so it wasn't flat. I tied on Bloomers as his scarf but that was just for pictures! I'll replace it with a felt scarf and save this for my layouts : )
The gold buckle is from K&Co glittered boxed set of alphas. It was a frame but now it's a buckle!

Rudolph got the treatment! I used core 'dinations paper on him and sanded the flowers to show up better. His eyes are punched with the SU oval punch (3/4 x 1 1/2)-white and the black circle on top is CM-3/4 inch. His nose was an adhesive circle (came in sheets) I bought long ago. The antlers were cut out using the Cricut-Christmas Cheer cart.

Hope this gets you thinking "out of the box!!!!"

Have a great weekend : )
