To celebrate this day we were asked to create something using recycled material. If you came from Mary´s blog you are on the right way, if not, why don´t you join us and start from the beginning at Michelle´s blog?
Now into my project:
I recycled this container to put your house keys, those that are around your place all the time and you can not find them when you have to go out? it also can be used to fill it with candy or chocolates... or as a place where to put your treasures...I started from a plane octagon styrofoam, originally this piece comes from the packaging of a 2 liters bottle of choloform we got at our lab and I use them all the time to store small thing around my working table.
here, I´ve used it in Living in a happy place card before. Papers are from Summer Driggs. The pieces of the house I glued them to a piece of thin cardboard that was part of the packaging of bed sheets I bought a while ago and I save it for later use.
I used Mary Mary from Michelle Perkett colored with colored pencils. I don´t know why but I´m always picturing Mary in front of a house... I should change her scenery someday but I love how she looks in front of a house!
I took a piece of white ribbon from my stash and I threaded hooks from cans of soft drinks (I have a margarine container full of them!), glued it all around the container and made a knot to secure it
Did you like my project? I had so much fun doing it! and I hope I can encourage you to use this packaging parts you usually throw away. If you varnish it, you can use it as a bowl to put some snacks!
Now hop onto your next stop: Therese!
