On Tuesday . . .

it was cold and miserable again. I've stayed inside all day and continued to work on holiday things in hopes it's warm enough to go out to the post office  tomorrow. Yesterday a matchbox was upcycled. Today, it was time to pretty up this:
The top and bottom were covered with fabric. I started to use some vintage seam binding around the rim:
like this, but then found in my stash some hot pink glitter rickrack; who wouldn't go for that sparkle?
A few embellishments and it's ready to be filled with candy and go:
One last look:
The fabric was from a small stack of various patterns that came from Big Lots and cost $1.00. The flower came from a bag of assorted things from a thrift shop, and the button brad in the middle from Tuesday Morning.

This effort is moving like a herd of turtles, but I'm trying to get it together. Now, off to clean up the mess made making it.

Have a great evening, and stay warm!
