Recycling.... and adding colours :)

Hello Craftser's

:) I'm back after almost a months gap, was kind of held up into dont know what :O... but I'm back and with some colors added to the bored life... I always love it when someone add some shades of colors onto something which otherwise looks mundane and boring....

This time around, I made a bangle box out of a mithayi box (Sweets Box), There's been a lot of trading of sweets between our families lately... for there were soo many marriages, mine being one of them :) (though it's almost 8 months now ;) ) but still, the thing which rules in Indian Marriages is ... the sweets and bhajjis circulated to celebrate... Wow.. and so.. I had these loads of boxes and was wondering what to make outta them, when an idea clicked... why not a bangle box.... I had 2 already but then, I do get a lot of bangles on each festivals (which I totally love... I'm a bangle freak).
So here's what I made !!!

The original box did not had a see-through center, so I cutted out a portion and made it look like this... this also is helpful when I'm frantically searching for bangles... see through box helps in quickly scanning to see if the bangles I need are in this box ;)

I loved creating a vibrant color pattern here :) for it really compliments my collection of bangles as well :)

Here's another view...
