Something recycled

We are sharing some favourite recycled items today at

and would love it if you came to share your projects with us.

I am rather partial to a certain kind of snacks that, once devoured, leave you with  a rather nice 
container which is perfect for storing crafty items like pens, pencils, embossing ball tools and so on.


 and after!!

The sweet little image is Friendship and was coloured to match the pretty papers that were free with a magazine (I think!!). The pom pom trim was lurking in my stash and I thought it added a rather nice touch. So that's what I did!! I hope you will pop over and see what clever peeps my team mates are and then do a bit of crafty recycling yourself!!

We are going here to participate!!
