A Welcome Gift

I wanted to add something else to the card and chocolate I gave my new co-worker so I refurbished a paper cube... everyone needs paper, right?    The first picture shows the "before" image... a perfectly fine patriotic paper cube that I found in my stash of "things to alter some day and give as a gift".  (I'm sure all paper crafters have a box of goodies like that!)

I took some Whisper White cardstock and cut it to fit around the paper cube.  I stamped it with images from the First Day set and same In Colors to match the card I made the other day.  Here is a close-up of one of the sides.  There's that cute little worm again!

After I had stamped the images, I adhered the Whisper White pieces to the paper cube using sticky strip as I wanted a strong bond for this project.  I wrote a personal note on the top piece of paper, too.

Stamps:  First Day
Ink:  Poppy Parade, Pear Pizzaz, Basic Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Accessories:  Paper Cube, Sticky Strip

Come back tomorrow to see the complete gift ensemble and gift bad I presented it all in!

What a great little gift! You only have a box of things to alter?!

I'm with Shelley--only one box of things to alter? I have a few more than that! I love this idea and your colleague appreciated it I am sure!
