{Video added} She thinks I'm cuuuuute......!

As you probably know by now, I love repurposing {formerly referred to as upcycling, originally known as  recycling.} I've never been offended by the term "recycling" so why it had to be changed and then changed again makes no sense to me LOL, but whatever you call it, I've used typical everyday trash to make this super cute pillow box valentine treat holder!! :) And for extra cuteness, added Peachy faces!

Ok for those asking how to make the transformation from tp roll to pillow box, a quick and super simple video! I do this folding on it first, then wrap with paper, and fold again. HTH!!! Have fun making these.

From this!

Finished project:

Slightly modified face from the everyday character faces.

Love the boozie faces!!
