Brie Box

I'm not one to hang onto an empty sour cream container, but those little round brie boxes are just too cute. I had to think of a use.

Here's what you need:
-Brie box (top and bottom)
-cute paper
-any kind of paper glue
-little rock and paint for the handle, or a cute bead or finial of some sort would be great, but this is what I had.
-glue gun
-exacto blade

Paint your rock and let it dry.

Cut out a circle 1/4 inch bigger around than your lid and another one for your bottom. Then make those little v cuts all around and glue it to your box.

Measure the width of your sides and cut strips, then glue it around.

Take your glue gun and whatever you are using for a knob and glue it on the top.

Then fill it with somthing that has been sitting in an "ordinary" container. And there you go!


  1. i LOVE the cherry knob on top!

  2. Do all of our thumbs look alike? I've seen a picture of everyones thumb now, and i'm thinkin they all look the same.

    1. My gosh, I just looked at the picture of your thumb, and you're right, mine looks just like it!

  3. This is SO cute! I love recycled things--yes, yes, I know, to a fault!

  4. I can't wait to try this one we get brie all the time.
