Anything But A card At Catch the Bug

Anything But a Card!

Hi, this is going to be a really short post, feeling ill again, can't stop coughing and yes that festive red nose is back with a vengeance! If Rudolph isn't available, I'd definitely be able to stand in for him!
This was a last-minute make as I forgot it was my turn to make an 'Anything But A Card' project for Catch the Bug. I recycled a container by covering it with red and green paper, adding a black belt and a little star button. The face is Elf 004, printed large...and sorry Jodie...I cut his head off! The finished container is the perfect size for the 'posh' hair products I bought as part of my daughter's Christmas gift! 
The original container!
Thanks for stopping by, hope you have a good week.
