Happiness is Homemade {and recycled!}

I am constantly saving my BirchBox's to be repurposed as card boxes. The challenge on The Paper Players was the perfect reason to get me motivated. With Mother's Day just around the corner it was a great opportunity to get some homemade gifts made!

The box is a kraft material which makes recycling it super easy! I only needed to simply decorate the top lid to cover the BirchBox label.

Here is the before~


I inked up the County Born stamp once more this week to create a country themed box and set of cards. Here is the outside of the box recovered! Don't you just love the little wooden clothespin?!


Inside the box is a set of 10 cards, 2 each of 5 designs.

 
 Here is a close up of each card. One of the cards matches the outside of the box.
