Recycled choc box for SCSC #18

Hiya everyone hope you're all coping with this cold cold weather
i thought it was done snowing here yesterday, roads were all clear and only snow that was left was in the shade where the sun could'nt get at it.
But how wrong was i.........
we got more of the white stuff last night and it settled and froze
crikey it was cold this mornin and road was like an ice rink.
I think i'm right in saying we have all had enough now yes
or does anyone out there want more ???
Well here is my entry for
Originally a box of Dairy Box chocs which my Dd gave me after christmas
it was empty of course and she challenged me to make something with it
as she had one too so we were both on the challenge.
She was much faster than me as i could not decide what to do with it and after lots of thought came up with this Storage for my larger flowers as they were still in the bags they came in.
as luck would have it the challenge at
Secret Crafters is to use something recycled and so here it is
i punched out the smaller flowers with the leftover bits of paper that i did inside of box with
and the letters i glittered but does not show well in pic i'm afraid.
and the inside below
i made the dividers using brown cardstock
i think my flowers look great inside what do you think ?

Just like to say thanks to Mel my Dd for the box
(even though it was empty lol)
and for the inspiration:)
Hope you like it and thanks for looking:)
Warm winter Hugs for all of you Val xxx
