I Challenge You Wednesday - Recycle

I picked the challenge for this week -- recycle.  Anything recycled was fair game --- boxes, buttons, ribbons, packaging, images from calendars or magazines etc.
Unfortunately I also had very little time to do anything!  I did need a quick gift for a friend whose having complications after surgery, so I whipped up this gift container from a recycled strawberry carton.  It's not what I had intended or planned, but since Wednesday is here and this is all I have done --- here it is!
Without the bow ---
  • Tim Holtz stamps
  • Alphabet (Studio G)
  • Copper embossing powder
  • Blue ink
Inside -- fresh baked chocolate chip (and peanut butter/white chocolate chip) cookies!
Now go here to see what my friend created for the challenge this week.

I must remember to save containers! This is a great idea. I like the extras like the colored tissue paper and bow.
