Project: Altered Drink Container - Challenge #3 - Altered Box Project
Nancy says, 'Don't moan too much! I want to have you think out of the box of your normal papercrafting and upcycle something. My usual go-to-item to recycle is cardboard drink containers. Remember my son's soda obsession? Well- I let him go in if he remembers to give me the cardboard container when finished. I have used these mainly for baby shower gifts filled with lotion and shampoo and powder, etc. But you could use them for desk organizers or birthday gifts or plasticware organizers,etc. Alter something to use for EASTER!'


The rules:

1. You need to recycle some type of box! (shoebox, drink container, cigar box, cardboard tube, etc.)

2. Must be submitted to the Challenge #3 – Altered Box thread by midnight, Saturday April 2, 2016. (CST)

3. You can submit up to 2 different entries.

4. Random winner will receive a $5 gift certificate from A Cherry On Top Crafts.
