Sticky stuff lemon Tilda

I seem to be on a bit of a roll at the moment with altering storage containers to pretty up my workspace. Not sure if it's just a kick back to all the dull weather and a yearning for some serious sunshine or what but either way I keep doing it.

This one use to be a baby wipe box but the lid got to the stage where it wasn't quite airtight even though it snaps shut so I decided it would be good to keep things like square sticky pads in cellotape and glue sticks. I would have put my double sided tape in but the roll is a bit too big, but as it's always in use what the heck.

I am continuing to use up my paper scraps, though to use them all I'll have to alter loads of things, so this one is yellow. See what you think.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges;-
Lets ink it up-anything but use yellow
die cut dreams -Tilda in lemon
Lollipops-use buttons and ribbons
Just scraps-fussy cutting
Cowgirl challenges-summertime feeling
Incy wincy-buttons and bows
