New Life

Sharing a little recycling project today...
I gave this little 4th of July box a new life.
A little "Mod Podge", some paper and 3-D flower stickers from
Melody Ross "Urban Artsy" collection and ...

a new life!
I think I will fill it with mini-notes and use for a gift.
The box is from Dollar General clearance and it is actually really well-made.
I just had to cover the top as the sides looked great as is.
The cork piece is a pre-cut adhesive backed floral piece that I found at Michael's in the kids' craft section, 8 for $1.  Love those kinds of bargains!
The recycle challenge, hosted by my blog-friend Lynn Miller over at "Do More with Less" blog,
was just the motivation for me to finish this project.
You can check out Lynn's beautiful wreath recycle project and learn more about the challenge
It's a fun site with lots of fun links to check out.
Thanks for visiting today!
