This used to be a ....cardboard shipping box!

I recently received a dress in a cardboard box meant for shipping... It was torn on one side...
Since my mom needed a memo board to keep track of groceries to buy, I thought I could convert this box to a memo board... Halfway through I decided it would be a two side memo holder and a pin it memo board! This way, bills could be stuffed in memo holder side and the TO DO/ TO BUY items can be pinned up in the pin it memo side...nice nah? So it was this..

I decorated the pin it side with golden diagonal washi tape from Lulupu and stamped an image using fiskars swirls of fun to make this...

And used FMI pattern paper, stamped a fiskars swirls of fun image and hippo stamps to make a memo holder like this....

Oh yes.... The blue organza ribbon is also from lulupu...the buttons on both sides from stash...
