It used to be a Shoebox Lid!

Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by boxes and bottles, plastic, glass or cardboard and my room used to be full of the ones I used to rescue from around the house. Some of them became storage containers while others were turned into little houses.

That is when inspiration struck and I came up with this project. Hope you have fun making this…
