Pink/orange piggies

So, I've been viewing lots of altered boxes on various people's blogs and one of my favourite things is recycling! My daughter received a set of little cardboard boxes with different flavours of hot chocolate inside, these boxes are such a cute little size - only 7cm tall and 5 cm wide, very dinky, soooo........

Here is a before and after or actually the way I have positioned the boxes, an after and before! I wanted to have a focal image that was repeated on each of the 4 sides and decided on little 'Cookie', as we have named her in our house, she is a Paperartsy Zini stamp that I won in a challenge! I have embossed her in a black/silver sparkly WOW embossing powder, so each panel has a sparkle to it.

 I actually really love it - isn't it great when you get a pure happy feeling from a creation, doesn't always happen! I'm hoping to purchase a few more ElenaZinski's little monster stamps and maybe alter a few more boxes, I think there are 6 in the hot chocolate set.
