Crafty Recycling: Vitamin Container to Gift Box

I've been keeping some of these empty vitamin containers, knowing that I wanted to use them as little gift boxes, so I converted the first one as a gift box for a beaded bookmark I made:
This is how it started off, a plastic container with a snap-on lid - I just had to remove the sticker label:
I tore up white mulberry paper into small pieces and decoupaged them all around the container:
I painted the top white plastic at the top, just to give it that extra hand-made look (instead of having a piece of bare plastic):
To decorate the lid, I used a little decorative circle design plate with my Cuttlebug, cut it out with scalloped scissors and glued it on top of the lid:
Then I just tied a white ribbon around the top and added a beaded dangly to decorate the gift box - the beads that I used for this decorative dangly matches the beads that I used for the bookmark that I'm gifting inside (except for the angel goodie - I just added that for the Xmas touch.)  :)

I love this. Very pretty how you made the angel with the metal wings. I love anything with beads. I have recycled little bottles and boxes to and enjoy seeing how others recycle. I am about to post some beaded snowflakes you might enjoy. Christmas Blessings, Lisa
