altered mini box

I love saving all sorts of tiny boxes to create cute little projects like this. I found this one in a hotel! It is one of those little complimentary sewing kits. I unfolded the box and glued some 7 gypsies pattern paper on it. After re-assembling it I sponged the edges with tea dye distress ink. You cant really tell in the photo but the box has a really cool shape. It comes to a point at the top and is wider in the middle. i just love how this turned out! I think I will keep it on my desk for a while. The paper is my favourite part. So cute!
This ribbon was originally black and white. I used my tea dye re-inker and painted it with an ink/water solution. I cut out the tiny tag with a cuttlebug die.
