I made this for a sweet little 8 yo boy I know who has just had surgery to remove a brain tumor. Please say a prayer for him and his family. Things do seem to be looking good at this point.
I got the idea, to reuse this acetate box, from www.heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com. They are having a reduce, reuse, recycle challenge this month. This box began life as packaging for a roll of vinyl. I wrapped it with 2 strips of CTMH paper from the Sophia and Caboodle collections. I edged the paper with our awesome Kraft Color Ready borders. They are the most versatile and cost effective items we carry! The monkey was cut with the Create A Critter cart with my Cricut using CTMH cardstock. The sentiment stamp is from My Pink Stamper. I wrote his name with a CTMH marker on one of our Canvas buttons. These can be stamped on as well. Of course, I had to add some fun googly eyes from my stash!
Hope you'll think twice before you throw away packaging again! I just keep a bin under a table to throw all my reusable packaging in.
