I liked the looks of it so I thought I could do the same thing with paper! Voila!
Using George, I cut a 3 1/2" circle out of white cardstock. I then used a piece of two sided cardstock to cut out a page of 1 1/4" circles. I then folded the circles in half alternating between the two sides. Starting on the outside of the circle, I glued the folded circles until the whole 3 1/2" circle was covered.
This is the finished circle. When I started covering the circle, I didn't know how I was going to use it. Then I thought of my new favorite cartridge, Artiste!!!
I created the box below cut at 3 1/4". Simply pushed the buttons and glued the top together. I created the bottom and found that the way the box is cut - the sides are not able to be glued together. With my left over circles, I attached one at each angle - you can kinda see that in this photo if you look closely.
Then I added ribbon around the top, tied a bow, and popped the circle on top.
This is the finished project. Mom has a new neighbor - she said she wanted the box to put cookies in as a "welcome to the neighborhood" gift.
