Cute Decorative Box

I LOVE Clearance items.  What can I say...I'm a sucker for a good deal.  My craft room is jammed full of awesome things I've picked up on clearance with the intent to modify in some crafty way.

So when I saw these two little guys in the clearance section at Hobby Lobby for somewhere around $1, I couldn't resist their potential to be cute little office accessories:

They're meant for pictures, but I'm not really the 'have photos out and about' kind of girl.  So I came up with a better option:

I picked out some cute paper...

Traced paper box that came inside the cube, then used my trusty bone folder to make my nice fold lines.

Then I simply folded up the box and popped it back in it's little acrylic shell!

It's a really simple project and it looks so nice next to my computer with all my other bright green goodies!

Anyone else nab any great clearance goodies recently?
