Going Green

This week the Heart 2 Heart Challenge (http://heart2heartchallenges.blogspot.com/) was to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. I decided to take advantage of this cute little "purse" box I received as a promotional from Pampers. I know, its a cute box on its own, but I was happy to re-decorate it into a cute birthday box. Here's the purse before. No one wants to receive a gift with a Pamper's add on the inside.
Using the paper from the "Sweetheart" paper pack, primarily Tulip and Hollyhock and the "Treasures" flower stamp set I was able to reuse this cute little box.

No more Pamper's ad, instead a birthday greeting.
Cute insert tab to write a personal birthday message.
I am excited to use this fun box and am glad H2H inspired me to create it this week. I could get use to this whole going green thing....maybe I'll try something else this week. I'll keep my eyes open for inspiration.
