Great Gatsby Recycled Gift Box


I recycled one of those horrible holographic foil gift boxes using Prima Moulin Rouge Papers and glittered die cuts and the Artistic Outpost Great Gatsby stamp plate to make a jewellery box. I also recycled a stopper from a broken glass decanter which I felt went with the art deco theme.  I used the text from the various stamps in differing brown inks to build up the layers, and the scroll from the Daisy stamp for the images on the top and the side panels. Hope you will join in the January recyling challenge!
