Re-Cycled Swiffer Dusters Box


Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend has been fabulous.  Mine has definitely been interesting - and I actually felt like making a new project today.  As you can tell from the photos below I had fun re-cycling a Swifter Duster's Box.  It all started when I went through a few craft boxes yesterday from our recent move.  I was using this Swifter Duster box as a trash can.  As you can see - I have already taken the box apart.  I was having so much fun using this box as a trash can I decided to make it a pretty one and keep it.  


After taking the box apart I decided to use the box with the outside turned inward.   I cut all the pieces to cover the box and used super tacky tape for added strength.  I put the box back together again and used Washi Tape as edging for the top and bottom.  I added the butterfly since it went so well with the quote on the cardstock.  


It may sound weird but I absolutely love this small trash can and it actually fits perfectly on my craft table.  I just hope it lasts a long time.  HeeHee!!

I just had to share this quick project with you and maybe, just maybe it might inspire you to create something out of cardboard too.  

Thanks so much for stopping by - it always makes my day and your comments mean the world to me.

With smiles always
