MARCHing into Makeover Monday!

Hee hee hee...just couldn't resist.  I can't believe that time is marching on so's already MARCH!

It's time yet again for another "Makeover Monday"!

Take a look at this:
Boring, no?

Reminds me of an empty toilet paper roll.  It's not, I promise!  In reality, this is only 4" tall and just over 1" diameter.

You soooo want to see what I did with it, don't you? ;-)

You're REALLY wondering what's inside this (now) cute little tube, aren't you?  Glad to oblige. ;-)

See why it says "Insured to Bring A Smile"? :)  If you have a crafty little girl....this little gift is insured to bring a smile. :)

This was another $1 find at a local store....ONE DOLLAR, folks. :)

I covered it with the oh-so-cute Sweet Pea DSP from the Occasions Mini catalog --- I had a hard time deciding which of the MANY cute double-sided papers to use!

I then stamped "Insured to Bring A Smile" from the set "Extra Postage" (also in the Occasions mini), punched with our large oval punch, then mounted it on a scallop oval punch...add a little white taffeta ribbon, and it. :)

PS - the lid comes totally off (it's not hinged)...I just had a hard time "posing" it for the picture, lol.

Well, what do you think?
