Recycle, Reuse, and Alter!

Shortly after I started crafting, I realized there is so much stuff I threw away that could totally be altered and remade fabulous! With that in mind even when I go through non-crafting months I save containers and bottles and such that can be reused. My favorite thing to alter is a bare essential make-up box, because they are sturdy and unique. DSC05124

I am sure you can come up with a million things to do with it, and best of all it’s free! (well with the purchase of your make-up) I personally don’t use this brand, but I ask all my friends who do use it, not throw them away when done. I also like big coffee tins and small paper ones that candy usually come in. That is what I used for todays project.

I used a free digi sentiment from stampinmindy’s blog, She is so kind to share.

Here is the side view. The image “Latte” was a free digi from saturated canary, it’s no longer free but Krista is offering it for discount here

Here is the top view, I used stuff I had in my drawer to decorate it. The top is cut with a spellbinders die pendant die. I used mod podge, I just love working with that stuff! I would mod podge a room in my house if I could. (tee hee) I’m going to make a nice hot chocolate package with peppermint chips and marshmallows, of course in a nicely sealed baggie, to stick in the container, so I can give it away at Christmas time. I would like to enter this projects in saturated canary’s challenge 23 Hot Chocolate and Marshmallows. I have to say that some of these challenges keep me going in allowing me idea’s for handmade gifts. Can’t wait to see what the next challenge is. Signing off ~ Angela
