Earth Day Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to Michelle Perkett's Studio Earth Day Blog Hop... If you came here from Jennifer's blogspot, then you are in the right place. If not then go to Michelle's blogspot and start at the beginning. I hope you like my recycled creation.


This is what the box looked like before recycling it.

I decided to recycle a Priority mail box and change it in to a Magazine Holder. I took a used mailing box and cut it in to a magazine holder shape. I then covered it using some of my 12x12 papers from my stash. I made my sunflower with my Nestabilities die cutouts. I added sunflower ribbon around the edges and some tiny pearls in the center of the flower. I hope that you will vote for my creation!!!
Now it is time for you to visit Claire's blogspot to see what she has to show you. Thank you for playing along with us.

Great idea for those boxes - when I get them here in Oz, from the USA, they aren't in good enough condition to reuse! Love your colour choice! And the sunflowers!
Hugs,

Rhonda Miller said...

What a creative idea Pattie. I love it. I might have to try it with the box I just happen to have sitting here. TFS.

grandmalee said...

What an awesome idea to reuse all of those Priority boxes that I seem to have a never ending supply of! I love to make my mag holders match its' contents, so this would give me a good excuse to finally get my mags all put away for once! Would probably work great for paper scraps too that I use all of the time! TFS!
