recycled food box

I made this project for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. The challenge was to alter a recycled item. This is a Wok Box food container I got from the restaurant. I painted it black to cover all the writing but left the top white. I traced the side of the box onto black paper and cut it smaller so it would have room for the green mat.
The black paper was embossed using the distressed stripes embossing folder. The tag I used is off a pillowcase I think. This project matches a card I recently posted.

I inked the white part of the box with green and the "create" word is a rub-on.
