What Am I Doing??

Well, here's a project for all you "green" people out there... my husband likes to purchase Raisin Bran cereal in those HUGE boxes at Sam's Club, and they really are nice boxes... corrugated cardboard rather than the single layer that most boxes are. I really am tired of crushing and sending them to the curb so I made these paper holders. (Watch out you "Cropper Hopper" people!!)
After cutting them down, I decoupaged them with white paper first (just so the cereal box wouldn't show through the scrapbook paper) and then I decoupaged Handsome Hunter cardstock on the bottom and scrapbooking paper on the top portion. Then added a ribbon around the seam and a card holder from the brass Hodgepodge Hardware set. Finally, I thought the inside needed something, so I cut felt-backed vinyl and tacked it down with tacky tape on the inside. Hope you like it!
