Waste Not, Want Not

Yesterday I made cards using my Kars wooden flower embellishments and all I had left was the little wooden tray they came in ….. so this is what I did with it….
Butterfly box
I know the grey’s a bit ugh and the tray’s a bit rough, but this was a five minute job, using up all the scraps of paper from the cards for my own amusement and it’s destined for one of the shelves in my craft room..

Sorry about the wet glue, I’m as impatient as ever!

That's a great idea - I have a similar box of flowers from Lakeland. Now I know what to do with the box when I've used all the flowers x
