Here is another project made with my Rockabilly DSP scraps. I used the Popcorn Box Thinlits and transformed the box into a takeout container. I really wanted my box to have a metal handle like the takeout box do so I was racking my brain to try and figure out what I had in my stuff that could work and I remembered I had kept some twist ties from some packaging so I gave that a try. The twist-tie in question happens to be covered with a white coating so it works with my project. I simply used my paper piercer to add holes on each side and slide the handle in.
I used the embellishments Thinlits from the same kit to decorate the box: the rickrack on top and the tag on the front. I stamped and embossed "sweets to eat" from the Ready to Pop stamp set and embossed it in black powder so that it would stand out against the cherry patterned paper. One of our retired library clip was used at the top of the box to hold it close.
The colour combo was also inspired by the Color Throwndown challenge #400.
