Now onto the eye candy, Gina has taken a common trash to treasure items, you'll be amazed at what they used to be, and turned them into beautiful pieces of art. This is so inventive and a great upcycling for anyone to turn into a centerpiece for just about any occasion.

"With all the spring and summer events coming I thought it would be nice to make this little cake as a decoration or favor or whatever, lol. The first one I made (my template, idea was from my buddy Carlene) was more of a wedding theme, but using other products. When I sat down to make this one with MB products it looks more like for a christening or baby shower. I imagine for this project any theme would work! I even thought if the layers were made with some different material than what I used (CAT FOOD CANS, lol) it could be a pin cushion too! Measures 7" tall. Hope you enjoy it and thanks again!" - Gina

Deb is such an amazing designer and this altered paper mache box can be used for a variety of things - great to fill and give as a gift, use it for your keepsakes or just a gorgeous storage box.

"I really hope ya'll like my paper Mache Box I created, I have only done one other altered Mache Box before. I had lots of fun doing this project, it seems that the products that I used from MB's Treasurista made it come alive and added an extra touch to Graphic 45's A Lady's Diary papers. So now lets see what you think!" - Deb
