Today I want to show you an idea I had for making a gift boxed set of cards using a plastic container that some salad leaves came in.   


When I was getting my rocket leaves out of the fridge a few days ago, I thought that the container would be just right to hold some square cards. 


I thought while I was in the upcycling/recycling mood, I should also use up some of my spare paper stash.  So I grabbed some old Bravo Burgundy (Stampin’ Up!) card stock and matching designer series paper, some punches and a pile of paper doilies I had in my “random craft stuff” box, and here’s what I came up with:


It was a layering job of DSP and card stock. I used my 2 3/8 inch scallop circle punch and the 1 3/4 and 1 3/8 inch circle punches.   The “For You” sentiment is from the Chalk Talk stamp set.  


I then decorated the plastic container to match the cards. 


 A quick tag using the scallop tag topper punch, some matching ribbon and voila!  


I made this for someone very special to me who is forever sending cards to other people, so hopefully she enjoyed receiving some cards of her own.  

Thanks for reading.
