Recycled Booklet Box

Hello peeps,
No post for so many days..don't know where i was busy but i have few projects to share.Today sharing a recycled booklet box.

This is the box after transformation. The brown paper is again a recycled one from a paper bag. Used few diecuts to embellish it.  In the center of the diecuts are the black and white glitter foam flowers. I have added a handle to give the look of a bag.

On all the four borders i have added the scallop border

This is how the bag looks after opening.I have kept the opening flap as such. Just covered with brown paper and distressed the edges with Faber Castell Ink.

 Back side of  bag-

This was the old booklet box that i found in my stash.The box contained booklets which i have kept to recycle some day.

And this is the paper bag which i actually use to cover inner and backside of my recycled bag. I have used inner side of this bag.
