Italian Gift Basket

Here is another garage sale item that I fixed up for part of a Christmas Gift.  I love when I get to do some upcycling!



When hubby and I were in Seattle in the summer, we picked up some Italian cooking items from the Public Market (pasta, rice pasta, balsamic vinegar, basil oil, and a few other items).  I repainted the box above  with an Italian feel.  I used my Cricut to make a stencil and used my Removable Glue Dots to hold it in place.  This is not my normal style (I am more of a Shabby Chic/whiteness style) but I am happy with the result.  This is for the Just Add Ink challenge - pretty packaging.
