Here's a tissue paper craft idea for your empty (or not) plastic chocolate boxes.
This tissue paper craft idea is for use with a solid plastic box. Solid plastic boxes look so recyclable, don't they? Yet it can be a challenge to think of ways to reuse them. I am pleased to be able to let you know about one such way. See the instructions below.
"Chocolate. Here today, gone today!"
~Unknown chocoholic. Or was that me? (PaperCraftCentral Susan)
I first thought about decorating an empty chocolate box years ago, but the thought never went beyond an idle and passing one. Then one year a scrapping friend issued a challenge to our scrapping group. She wanted us to think of a way to make a gift box out of an empty plastic chocolate box. That meant I had to think a little harder and deeper about how to actually do this since my decorated box would also be given away as a gift to another member of the group.
There is pressure in a challenge, I agree, but it is the fun kind of pressure :)

NOTE: You could decorate the box on the outside (instead of on the inside) with the strips of tissue and paste. I just wanted a smoother outside finish so chose to decorate the inside.
I think the box looks lovely in full light as light filters through the tissue paper layers.
If you have altered a plastic item such s this before, I hope you will show me how yours turned out. It would be fun to see other ideas for using the tissue paper craft idea as well.
Do you have a piece of altered art you have created? I'd love to see it.
