Recycled Classic Boxes

Hello there!

Today I wanted to do something a little different.

I have been saving these old boxes forever,
and today I covered them with paper.
Sorry I didn't take pictures of the old boxes.
they were pretty dated!

I chose black, white, and grey.

I love how the new papers go with the old papers.

These are the 3 cardstock papers I used,
Smoky Chevron, Black on White Damask, and Silver on Black Paisley

Black on White Damask Thermal CardstockSilver on Black Glitter Cardstock
Smoky Chevron Cardstock

I traced the boxes, and covered the boxes with elmers glue.
Then glued the papers right on the box.

I then stacked the boxes and tied them with a sheer black ribbon 
with gold fleur de lis.  
Attached an "O" for O'Crowley.

This was simple and pretty easy,
I was done in a few hours.
And now I have cute, updated boxes to use in my house.

Have a great day!

If you click on the papers they will link you to the web site
where you can purchase these papers.

Have a great day!

I love using old boxes. I have tubs and tubs of them that I save for such a thing. Then I just went and bought more cigar boxes at an estate sale. lol

This is a wonderful use of the boses. So elegant!
