Proud to be a Womble!

Like most kids that grew up in the 70's, I was mad about The Wombles, and I think their "making good use of the things that we find, things that the everyday folk leave behind" ethos may have stayed with me throughout my adult life too, well at least as a crafter anyway. I was mooching around at work a few days ago ( I work in a large DIY store, btw) when I can across a pile of boxes that the Dulux tester pots come into store in, anyway, they were all in good condition, so I grabbed a carry bag full and went home with a big smile on my face. Been having a little play this afternoon, and this is the first creation.....

the "before" shot! 

and "after"

and the "lid" shot - the ribbon was rescued from a broken box of christmas deckies too, so extra womble points there too!
I didnt think it looked too bad for first attempt, what do you think? Any suggestions for the other boxes?
