Frosted box

How do you play creatively? There is no "exactly" how to do it but there are guidelines to lead you- that is the focus of this year's Let's Play link party and giveaways!

You might guess from the shape of the box that I used an old Valentine candy box to upcycle. They make a great size gift box although mine is going to hold something different and you have to wait until my next Arnold Grummer blog post to find out. 

I wonder if anyone can guess what it will be? ...hmmm?

I also used something (that is controversial in my group of friends) to cover the box with...
old Christmas cards!
Some people consider this horrific to recycle a card because they keep them, (like forever) but hey, if you send me a store bought card, it's gonna get recycled. 
Now handmade cards on the other hand are another story!

I made a very short slide show video for you to watch if you are interested in the process :)

Very pretty! It is the time of year for cardinal birds.They look so vivid against the snow and grey skies. I think you've captured the feeling of those birds in winter with your pretty box re-do. Nice work!
