Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose

That's the theme this week at Sassy Cheryl's challenge and it's all my fault my turn to put together the challenge.  I don't know about you, but I have a box-load of different kinds of packaging (I LOVE packaging) that I hope to modify or "CASE" (copy and share everything) in some way. I have everything from gourmet food boxes to boxes for contact lenses.. all great patterns for upcoming projects.
For this project, I used an acetate box that housed new fabric scissors I recently purchased. You can see on the right hand side that it had a hang-top originally.
I simply snipped off the hang-tag portion and voila!... a darling box for butterscotch candies. I have an elderly uncle that loves butterscotch.. and being the Irish Lad that he is, he'll enjoy this and perhaps will even share with my elderly aunt... well, maybe.  I think he hides his candy stash from her.
