I made this little box with all recycled material. It's really easy to make and you only need basic tools.

Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED

MATERIALS:
-a little box (you can make one out of cardboard);
-music score page;
-glue gun (I used some other glue, but the glue gun is better because is transparent);
-coffee;
-paper stick glue;
-pet food aluminum container.

TOOLS:
-scissors;
-pliers;
-brush.

Step 2: PAINT THE SCORE

Cut the flat part of the aluminum container in stripes, bend one of the long edges a little bit and roll it up like a little rose.

→Pay attention to don't cut yourself during the whole project.

Step 5: IMPROVE THE ROSES

Make the rose prettier: cut some flower shapes on the aluminum and stick them under each rose with the glue gun.

Step 6: MAKE THE LEAVES

Cut many little leaves shapes in the aluminum.
Make a line in the middle and many on the sides of it, with something pointy (I used the scissors).
Fold them a little bit in half with the pliers.
