Tea Bag Box? Or Not!

What can you do with an empty tea bag box???

I am so thrifty and am always thrilled when I have the opportunity to make something out of nothing.
Are you ready?

Just painted with some Gesso to cover the bright color and pattern.
I found these laser cut frames at Michael's after Julie McGuffee shared a quick project she made.
I added the Gesso to the frame before attaching to the front.
 So what do you think of my recycled box? Do you think it is nice enough to give as a gift?

Thanks so much for popping in today- always thrilled to have you visit.
