Altered Noodle Box

Hi everyone, today I am here to share my Altered Noodle or Take out Box with you all.  I have had this noodle box in my stash for quite some time, just waiting to be altered. I thought the Gingerbread collection from Kaisercraft was perfect for it!!  I love these papers, they have a retro feel to them and certainly put you in the Christmas mood.  I have used selections from the 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 paper pad.
 My first step was to pull the box apart and set aside the wire handle.  Making sure to put it where I would find it again!!  I don't know about you, but sometimes I put things down on my desk and they just vanish!! never to be seen again!!
 I then cut out segments from the sides to reduce the bulk and make the sides sit a little flatter.
I also sanded the shiny surface just to be sure that my glue would stick.

After I got all my surfaces prepped I set about tracing and cutting the box pieces out.  I am sorry guys I got busy with it and totally forgot to take pictures of this process.  
 When I finally remembered to take photos, I was up to the embellishing stage.  I have used some ribbons and seam binding from my stash.
 A sticker or two from the sticker sheet that came in my kit.
and the final touch was a wooden Santa embellishment from my stash.

 Here is a close up on the sides and the ribbons. 

This project came together really quickly and easily. I think it makes a great gift box, but I thought I would use mine as a table decoration and fill it with lots of Christmas lollies!!!

Thanks again for stopping by and sharing some of your time with me.
