Create a Container [Re-cycled]

There is a new 613 Ave C  challenge starting Aug 4th:  "ATG or the optional Twist: "Create a Container".  You have the month of Aug. to show your creative talents!   For details of the challenge and for some very creative ideas from the DT's inspirational contributions - click HERE!

Below is a box I made in a recently attended Stampin' Up class.  The design is the instructor's, Dana Wurster.  The pillow box itself, made from a polka-dotted Kraft CS, is sold by SU!
When I came home I made my own pillow box using an empty toilet paper cardboard roll.  Instead of a belly-band, I used a ribbon to tie and hold the ends together to secure candy for a birthday.

If you are interested in the complete details of making your own - directions for this container is linked below on my blog post called Re-think, Re-use, Recycle!

Create wildly and color with abandon!
