Prima Packaging Acrylic Card

I was about to throw this packaging out but then took a second look at it and decided it would make a great acrylic card! I trimmed off the side flaps and sanded the edges, then trimmed the bottom so it opens - pretty simple!

I added zig zag stitch stamps from Lizzie Anne to the inside of the card along with a sentiment from PTI. The aqua branch and birds were on the prima packaging, so I added a few rub on flowers and the rub on owl (from K&Company). The prima flowers at the top are the flowers that came in this package. I added rhinestone brads to the centers and atached with score tape.

I love re-using packing and like to constantly think up ways to do it. Let me know what you think of this card and what other reusable ideas you have!

Oh yeah... one LAST thing. We're closing the Paperaddiction store, so all the papers & products are now 40% off!! This is pretty much the wholesale cost plus the freight charge to ship it to us, so you're getting the best buy possible. We've had alot of it sell out already this morning, so don't miss out on all the goodies! WWW.PAPERADDICTION.COM
