A recycled gift box decorated with the gorgeous new bow dies - an idea from Doda

I had fun making this sturdy little gift box from recycled items I had around the house. I was excitedly waiting for the lovely new small lacy bow die set as I knew these would finish it off perfectly. I've also used the new Victoria embossing folder, arboreal dream dieset, and the top and bottom of my box are cut with one of the dies from the threaded scallop circle layering die set.

Now... can you have a guess which recycled items I used to make this box? There are two sizes of one  type of item, and for the feet I used another item most people throw away...that's a real tricky one. Here's a clue about the item I used for the feet...

I'm wrapped around these circles, and I clean between the gaps.

I'll let you know that the card I used for the inner rim of the box was from  Amazon book packaging.

All I added were some pretty papers, a few jewels, some Tonic Funky glue (who could do without that !) and of course, fabulous Tonic Dies.

I wonder if any of you will guess right !

Have a lovely day
