Kraft Containers


I made this Mickey Mouse kraft container for my downline that attended Convention with me.  I love the versatility of these containers and all that they will hold!  I enjoy making things for them that will hold memorabilia that may not go in an album.  It also makes a very good container for saving change for next year's convention!

I used Tommy paper, chevron ribbon, and the tiny type epoxy alpha.  I've had the Mickey Mouse stickers in my stash, and I picked up a knob at the hardware store to add to the top.  Fun and easy!

I'll give you a little tip on these kraft containers.  Paper applies very easily using Bonding Memories adhesive, and with one 4-3/4 x 12" piece of paper you can cover the entire bottom.  So even if you cut out a circle for the top and a band for lid, you are using less than one piece of paper.   This is an awesome way to wrap a gift!
