You are so talented!  I love these boxes!

I had made these types of boxes as a kid and found few tutorials to refresh my memory on pinterest.

I admit to saving calendars...I have quite a large box full...I mostly use the pages to make paper beads and for junk journals...those boxes are lovely!

I don't really have a use for small boxes, but I love the idea of recycling those pretty pages...!

Thanks!

Haha! And I have little use for paper beads, so we're even steven. I made and give enough small things that I that I think I'll use these over the next couple of years. I have found myself actually buying boxes which drives me crazy!

That is such a good idea! Why didn't you post this before I threw away the one from our dry cleaner?? 
We had a Dr. Seuss one hanging in the kitchen last year. I'm going to see if I can make use of that.
Horton is a bit large, though, I fear.



I just did it today! Smiley  Horton is recognizable enough even with just part of him on top.
Suc a cool idea - great re-use of the pictures! Smiley

Thanks!

Best part is there are now fewer too-cool-to-toss-things in my stash.

Those are so pretty.......I just chunked a dozen or so calendars from years back that I had hoped to do something with and during one of my why do you still have this moods they ended up in the trash.

Great job!

Thanks! I had calendars from way back, but I didn't allow myself to move them when we moved from Oregon to Montana. I gotta make myself draw lines!  Roll Eyes

Great stashes are yielding great projects you guys!

I have been holding on to free wall calendars sent by our financial adviser over the years. Today I made several gift boxes from the pretty landscape photos in them.

I've been holding to landscape calendars that we receive as annual gifts from our financial adviser. I don't really have a use for a wall calendar, but the pictures are so pretty I knew I could use them for something eventually. This is a good start.



I used the less interesting-to-me or not especially suitable for this project pics for the bottoms of the boxes. I tended to like them to contrast with the tops.



The insides are kind of interesting in a kaleidoscope-y kind of way, too!



I think these will come in handy for the small handmade gifts we give. They aren't as sturdy as I was hoping, but they'll work for non-shipped gifts.
