Upcycled Xmas Cookie Box

 A few years ago I discovered panettone bread in a box at Ross,  It was a huge loaf that made excellent bread pudding. Amazingly, the bread stays fresh for a very long time and can be frozen.  This year I found mini panettone bread in the cutest boxes.  I couldn't bear to toss the boxes after devouring the contents so in defense of my hoarding gene, I  decided to upcycled them. (That's a fancy way to say decorate and repurpose.)
I found some striped card stock in my overflowing stash of Xmas papers and used it around the sides.  I added stickers, die-cut sentiments, sequins, and ribbons. 
It was so easy to turn a throw-away to a keeper, usable for holding my baked goods.
 I even decorated the bottom with the reverse side of the striped card stock.  Most of the supplies used were from my seemingly bottomless Xmas crafting stash.  The scalloped felt ribbon is a Martha Stewart product and the green ribbon with gold edging is a Heiko item from Celebrations.  I really like the gold glitter snowflakes from Sierra Pacific (sold at HM BFC)...there are so many snowflakes in that small vial! I hope that you will try upcycling your empty food boxes while you still have your Xmas supplies out. The holiday season will be rolling around again before you know it, so start decorating now. You'll be so happy next year when you find finished boxes, cards, and tags!
