Fun with a box

My husband got a box in the mail yesterday, and as soon as I saw it, I knew I wanted it. Not the contents, just the box. A plain cardboard box, that wanted to be painted:



Now it is a much happier box. Why did I want this particular box? Here is a photo of it on its side, with an ATC next to it for size comparison:



As you can see, this box is perfectly sized for storing ATCs. I think I will make it my new ATC swap box for the Technique Junkies swap.

I love shades of blue and green, it is one of my favorite color palettes. Gingersnap Creations is having a "shades of blue" challenge, so I will enter this - lots of people make cards, not so many decorate boxes to put them in.
