Tracy, over at Tracy's Happy Place, hosted an altered container contest over the last few weeks. I really wanted to do a DVD tin but didn't have any left after making a bunch at Christmas. I decided to try to make a Coaster Box with a hinged lid instead.
The box is pretty easy to make... just takes time gluing the sides together and on to the base. I only did two sides at a time and then propped them up while they dried. The Primas are along the bottom on all four sides.
Unfortunately, I didn't place in the top 3, but I am very pleased with how my creation turned out.
Take a peek at the winners over at Tracy's blog... I'm sure the judging wasn't easy for Tracy and her husband Allen!
