Altered project

ScrapaliciousUSA DT post-  This week its all about altered projects.  I'm not big on altered projects but I do love to cover up old boxes and find new uses for them.
I took an old promarker box and recovered it with cardstock and patterned paper to make a perfect holder for my Copic Markers.
Then I needed something to hold my cards.  I found an old box recovered it in papers and added an extra tab at the top to use as a handle to open the box.  I just love this new set.

Be sure to go to a great selection on patterned papers, Copic markers, stickers, glitters, embossing powders and more.

I would like to enter it into the following challenge:

Manly card- image by Morgan Fitzsimons

I have had such a good time with this Card Topper from Scrapbook Stamp Society.  The card topper comes in 2 different ways, an svg file for your machine to cut, or regular jpeg to cut by scissors.  This one I hand cut by scissors.  This one came pre-colored which I really like, because I wanted to do something fast.  This card was done in less than 5 minutes and now I can mail it out in the morning, no sweat.  :)  The image is by Morgan Fitzsimons.  Its available in card toppers or by digi stamp, colored and non colored at
