Crafty Cardmakers- Alter a food container

I have candy HERE

Hi folks, my second post today. How are you all? really good I hope. Well another new week ahead, wonder if Mr. sunshine might put in an appearence? Fingers crossed. :o)

I had a really fab time yeterday at the Stampmagic show at Doncaster. I was demo-ing at Little Claire's and just loved it. I met some really lovely crafters and bloggers.  Before I knew it, it was time to clear away, it's true what they say, time really flies when you're having fun. 

Anyhoo! we have a really fab challenge for you over at Crafty Cardmakers. We want you to alter a food container.

For my altered food container I decided to make use of a cheese triangle box. I thought it would make lovely storage for my pins. After taking off all of the original design, I coloured around the the edge of the lid using a Promarker. I punched some copier paper using a Martha Stewart punch and pleated it around the side, then added a strip of contrasting paper over the top. I then layered up a couple of circle nesties using foam tape and stuck them onto the lid. Added an Humphrey's corner image, which I coloured with Promarkers. Then I added some letter tiles and Martha Stewart flowers and butterflies. Some card candy and gems to finish.

We would love for you to join us, so get out all those containers from the recycle bin and join us. I'm sure you'll have a fab time creating something useful out of rubbish.  Whilst you're over at Crafty Cardmakers, check out my teamies amazing creations, you'll love 'em.

Hope you all enjoy the rest of the evening.
