A new month at Just for Fun

I did enjoy looking at all the creation for anything but a card, you did us proud at Just for Fun last week :)
This month it my turn to choose the theme I have chosen to recycle any and everything from around the home starting with paper no not the stroke able kind the stuff you would throw away books magazines brochures there's just so much you can do with it all. So this week I've done 2 pieces the first something I've been wanting to do for ages and that's turn a book into a box
I think this will make a perfect gift box, after cutting out the center I have lined it with some stamped paper,  for the out side I have simply use the inka paints boy do they give great coverage :) I have left open space on the cover so I can add something not sure what yet as I haven't decided who will get this for Christmas .
Then at the weekend I saw this stunning image in the paper and thought that would look good on a tag so I used one of the pages stuck it to a tag and coloured with distress satins

I know some of you are going to really enjoy this challenge but if you want more ideas of what you can do then check out the serendipity turorial and what my partners in crime Zoe and Neet have come up with :)

Fab tag Von, really fab! Love your book box - it reminds me of the time I had to teach a niche in an altered book - must find it and blog it some time.
Well done you, two gorgeous projects in one day.
