 Hello everyone,

I have added a picture with this post for you see the tubes of cat food in strong plastic tubes that were in the pouches, no meat or juice or mousse contacted the cardboard, therefore no smell or contamination, except the cat knows, she can sniff those pouches on the back seat of the car when I get home from shopping even when they are buried down the bottom of the back, or she just knows that's where they are, she loves them, and as a special treat I squirt the stuff onto her raw chicken and she makes a growling purring  gobbling noise while eating it.....

Onto my post..

four packets [tubes] of mouse inside the pouch..[ hee hee]

and this is what I grab off the shelf...easy storage in the panrty
and this animal costs me $140 fortnight for food!!!!plus extras, but so worth it..

So, I could not let this box go wasted
 and started to cover it with old book pages..

was not hard at all, no trimming required because when it dried...

it dries nice and crispy..

and the emery board just slides the scraps of paper right off..

Then I inked every edge until it was all grunged up..

and a new container was born to hold my tags..

So there you go..

Thank you so much for stopping by today..
I'll see you tomorrow with more up cycling using cellphone boxes..

This is fantastic Chrissy! I love that you have not only decorated and used those pouches and made some fabulous tags with them, but you used the box to decorate the tag holder too! such a clever and fun idea! Love the book pages and distressed edges!!

You are just so clever with your packaging, I love the idea of using the torn strips to cover it, and with the inking it looks terrific, perfect spot for your tags! Now you have me thinking how much we pay out for our two cats, I have never added it up!
