Gifttube for Birthday / Anniversary gift

A few of the things I love is recycling pretty packaging.
Every time I get a gift or buy something I take a close look at the package and see if I can make something nice out of it.
Good thing I have enough space to store all the interesting items , the only thing I need now is time , lots of time , but think that is a common problem we crafters have.
Anyway  I got some scented sticks ( love those too)  and the came in this tube .

We had a anniversary and double birthday party coming from friends , the asked money so they could buy something nice that was very expensive.
I think just giving money is boring , so wanted to make a nice package to put it into and I had this tube lying around so cut half of it and made this out of it.

 On the top lid I glued a buch of flowers

 Under the lid I glued a satin ribbon that you can pull to take the lid of and it's also a handle to hold the gift.

 and a little birthday card to go with it and voila, gift tube is done.

For this project I used the Celebration Collection , what better papers are there to use for this gift tube than  the celebration Collection right?
Flowers are from Wild orchidcrafts , pearls and ribbon from my private stash.
Thank you for visiting.
I hope you like my project for this week and hope I gave you some inspiration for recycling those tubes.
I have more tubes lying around so will be back with another one soon.
