Inspired By a Box, Part 1!!!


What do you mean, inspired by a box?

When my Friend Joan was visiting, we went to a store in the

next town over…I purchased a Lotion and Spray.

Here they are!


Neroli Sol by Thymes

When we got home and I opened them up…the items sat in their own box and the lid slipped over the bottom…sort of like a double box! I wish I took a picture of the before…but take my word for it!  I mentioned to my friend that I liked both the lid and the inside box. She laughed and told me that only I could think of a way to use them on a Card! Well. I did! Today is a Card made with both box lids…a lot of trimming before the final product! Today’s Card is Part 1 of using the box parts!

Here is my Card!


So Beautiful and Tropical!


Here is the inside of my Card!


This little strip is from the smaller box that the spray was packaged into so elegantly!

Here is my Card again!


So go ahead and use the cute, pretty, neat packaging from an item you bought!

There are really no rules…I just thought the box design was pretty,

and I figured out a way to use the lids!

Tomorrow’s Card is with the Inside Boxes!

Here’s a hint: look at the lids on both of the Thymes products!

Until the next Post…Blessings on your Creativity too!

Let me know what you think!
