Recycling oxo box

i have recycled a small oxo  box today as it's raining yet again and i can't  get into the garden. My poor garden is starting to look like a jungle but it gives me more time to craft so that must be the sunny side. These little box's would look lovely in the right paper for hanging on the Christmas tree .

 So open up your box and glue on the paper of choice and allow to dry.
 Then cut around the excess paper, the glued on box is your template.
 now all you need to do is stick the sides together, you can glue and peg or in this case i have used the red backed tape so it will not come apart.
 I had some small images left over from a card i made so i have used them on all four sides and two smaller ones on the top and base and tied a ribbon around. You may not get a lot inside but most diamonds will fit, lol.
This is small box of 12 oxo and you get 24 and 36, so you could a little set.
I hope you like it
