*Hinged Coaster Box*

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!





items used:
*Patterned Paper: Basic Grey
*Embellishments: pewter letters (unknown source), grosgrain ribbon, Prima Flowers, Bling

Love the box Nancy! I haven't entered any contests yet, I am too soft hearted for that! Kudos to you for trying, I think the box is great, and it's covered in my favorite paper!!
