ok, I forgot to take before pictures, but this used to be a Toblerone display box that dispensed miniature Toblerone bars.  I work at Toys R Us, and we were just going to toss out the box, but I knew I could give it new life!  So I took the box apart, traced it onto some lovely Butterfly wrapping paper, went to town with a glue stick, and now it's gorgeous!  Since I don't really have anything to put into it, i'm going to use it as a holder for all my nail polish.  I was going to put my lip balm in first, but then I have a lemon for that! 

Before:



(except the box I had didn't have a pyramid lid and instead was flat)

After:



(with flap open)



(with flap closed)

LOVE it.  And Toblerone.  I have perpetually chapped lips, and a chapstick addiction, would love something like this to "dispense" them!
