Blogger's Challenge--Alter It

I bought this waste basket months ago on sale at Office Max I think??? Who know where I get half the stuff I have, lol. So I thought it was probably time to alter it. I wanted to show off the cute new papers that will be available from Stampin Up! July 1st. So cute. When I get the time I will make some matching pieces like a light switch cover, night light and picture. Won't that be cute for a kids room? Here is what it looked like before altering.


And here it is with the papers all done up. Kinda of cute. I guess? Not what I was thinking but not horrible.

Have a great Friday.
