low calorie cookie box


The other day when hubby and I finished this new Special K candy he was about to toss the box in the trash and I said to him hold on I think I can make something with it. The colors of the bag reminded me of some Magnolia Design papers I have and I liked the shape of the box. Instead of going through the trouble of remaking the box I just painted it with Gesso leaving on some edges peek the teal still through so my Designer paper was meant to be with the box.


On the back side of the box I kept the original closure. I could have covered the lid as well but I wasn’t sure if I could trace the lip that closes the box as nicely back in. It works for me. Over the Gesso I just stamped with a background stamp some texture.
