recycled handle box

Eat salad? Wonder what to do with the big plastic container it comes in? They work great in the freezer to store things separately from other items. Or you can decorate and put a handle on it. Instant vessel to carry things or use as a purse. It closes tight enough to for stuff not too heavy. I use mine for markers/crayons/colored pencils/etc. To cover the clear box, first I sprinkled glitter on the outside, then with strips of purple paper and modge podge, covered the whole outside and lid. Once dried, I painted the outside black and placed a store bought black bamboo handle on top(just poke a whole and screw in). A fun different new box.
