Blogger's Challenge #121: Alter it!

This may be the fastest and cheapest project ever posted on the internet!

I saved this Crystal Light container this summer and just knew it would come in handy during an alter it challenge. When looking at it today and thinking about the upcoming holidays, an idea was born. This one:



I took a piece of the flocked Christmas Cocoa specialty Designer Series paper and wrapped it around the container. Then, I spent about 5-10 minutes on my Digital Studio and designed my Curly Label tag. I cut it out and attached it with the Whisper White Satin ribbon. I cut a slot in the lid and now I've got a way to put some coins aside for Christmas splurging!

This is a really cute idea! Don't you just love that flocked paper? Nice job, gf!

Cute idea!!! Those coins definitely add up. We use a coin jar (mine isn't this pretty) all year long and then go to the bank the week before our trip.

Isn't that flocked paper the greatest?
