Just doing some recycling...

So I got this great new storage case for all my cricut catridges.  You can't tell from the picture, but there are 2 that are never in the case.  Artiste and Art Philosophy have spots in the case, but they never make it in there because I use them all the time!

So now what do I do with all the empty boxes?  They are kind of cool right?
But really am I going to add them to junk I already have in here?  Hmmm.  What else could they look like?
How About this:

Yes even Zoe likes this box.  Thankfully she didn't try to lay down in it.  She seemed to realize she wouldn't fit.  I think the next box will be something with fall leaves.  Then maybe a Christmas box.  A baby girl and baby boy box.  I have a lot of boxes.  I even have some more that were given to me - Thanks Shari! 
Let me know what you think and if you have any other ideas for my recycling of the boxes I'd love to hear them.  All the supplies used are from Close to my Heart.  
Items used are:
Moonlight Paper Pack X7161B
Desert Sand Cardstock 1273
Hanted Assortment Z1741
Black Tulle Ribbon Z1798
Silver Shimmer Trim Z1799
Fashionista D1504 (Spring Catalog still available) 
Designer Brads Z1360
Exclusive Ink Stamp Pads in Black, Smokey Plum, and Goldrush.
My plan is to have several of these boxes made up and available for sale at the Mt Olive Lutheran Church Fall Bazaar October 13th and at the Garden Home Rec. Center Bazaar December 1st. 
Well off to make another one.  Happy crafting everyone!
