Compendium of Curiosities 2 Challenge #8 - Repurposed Packaging

Hey all, this week's Compendium of Curiosities Challenge over at Studio L3 is the repurposed packaging technique that can be found on page 62 of Compendium of Curiosities Volume 2 by Tim Holtz

The technique in the book shows a couple of different ways to re-use the plastic packaging that comes with a lot of craft supplies. 

Believe it or not, the flowers on this box were made from the clear plastic sheet that held some cling stamps!  I colored the plastic using Adirondack Alcohol Inks and then cut out the petals, heated them with my heat tool and molded them into shape.  Pretty cool huh?
