Recycled

A couple of times a week, we get a box delivered from Graze which contains 4 little packets of yummy nibbles. (check 'em out if you've not come across them before)  The boxes are made of kraft card and have photographic scenes on the inside surface. I've been thinking for ages that it's such a shame to chuck them in the recycling bin.  So I saved a few and last week cut lots of different shapes with my die cutting machine and this is my first creation with my recycled Graze box.  I've just used the card as is, distressed the edge of the tag and edged the dies with platinum UTEE.



As this week's Out of a hat creation is recycled packaging, I've entered!

This is gorgeous, Carol. Love the way you've distressed the edges of the butterfly and flower.

You're definitely right not to chuck out the packaging, it's lovely.
