Quick Tip Tuesday #15

Well ladies another Tuesday is upon us and summer is officially here!  Yippee! and It is time for another quick and fantabulous tip.

Now if you have ever given your scrap space a tidy after creating an elabourate layout or creation you will notice that our craft is not the most environmentally friendly.  Besides all the scraps of paper, there are loads of wrappers, packaging, tape backing, you name it!  To make up for that downfall one thing many scrappers attempt to do is recycle!!!!  One way I love to recycle is to alter and reuse pretty much anything I can get my hands on, and today I thought I would share some of my personal reused creations. 

This was a canister of Cashew that I turned into a treat potty jar filled with lollypops

Here is an old picture frame that I scrapped inside of.

This box contained a braclet that I recieved as a gift.

This is a box of Ovation Chocolates, altered and ready for gifting!

Baby food jars make the cutest little containers for candy

and lastly here is a cardboard container that I altered and filled with beer for a friends Birthday.

I hope I have inspired you to browse around from some items to alter in your scrap space!  Go Green!!

  8. Great ideas...I'm always recycling items and looking for more creative ideas. I like the box with beer cans in it. I have about 25 of these boxes I saved from a luncheon that everyone was throwing out and I just couldn't let that happen..so I have been saving them for a rainy day.
