Wow - this is one of the most creative things I've seen done - and as much as I'm on Craftster, that's saying a lot! You did a fantastic job with it, too - working with tiny things can sometimes produce less than stellar results, but yours came out wonderfully. Normally I don't spend a lot of time looking at scrapbooking, because I'd want to do it, and I'm too much of a perfectionist - but this caught my attention and held it.

Can you tell I'm impressed? Smiley

But we have flamethrowers. And what this indicates to me, it means that at some point, some person said to himself, "Gee, I sure would like to set those people on fire over there. But I'm way too far away to get the job done. If only I had something that would throw flame on them."

That is soooo cool!  I think I may have to adopt an idea like this...I've never seen skittles in a little box like that before, but I'll have to keep my eyes open.  My husband is deploying in a couple months (active duty Army) and this would be a great pick me up for the times I'm not at home & miss him but can't grab the closest picture! haha  Thanks for sharing!

I thought I was the only one that had a fetish for candy boxes...and I noticed, those bread bag plastic tab thingies (last photo). I collected a heap and wasn't sure what to do with them, yet.  Any ideas?
Btw, great job!  I'm gonna try this for sure...if I can get teeny photos of my kids...hmmm....

I am so glad I saw this post! I found an old Skittles box exactly like that in my desk the other day and stopped myself just before throwing it away. Yours now looks adorable. I love the tiny-ness of the scrapbook elements.

Where did you EVER get such a great idea.  Every time I see a candy box I wonder how it would look altered but then I think maybe I am being silly but now I know I am not the only one that thinks my way.  Thanks!

This is an awesome upcycle and a very unique and space saving alternative to the pocket "brag books".   I especially like your use of the plastic bread wrapper tabs.
