Altered Nail File Packages - 3D Wednesday


Hello!   It is 3D Wednesday at My Creative Time and I have a quick, thrifty project today!  I just cannot resist a bargain.  You can often find me in the 90% off isle of my favorite store after a holiday.  I found these adorable "matchbook" style nail file packages at Target after Valentine's Day. They were $.39 for a package of 12.  The covers said "Happy Valentine's Day" but I knew I could fix them up very easily.
 
I used Emma's All Around Everything, All Around Everything Accesories and All Around Goodies Stamp Sets for the front.  I used the scraps from a bunch of my 6x6 pads to cover over the holiday theme.  The result is cute little favors for about $.04 each!
 




 
I hope you enjoyed my project for today!  Go here to see more 3D projects!  Have a great day and remember you can make wonderful things with left overs and scraps!!!
