Tuesday Tip/Technique

Hello friends

Today is Tuesday so it must be time for a tip/technique.
Today I'm talking about recycling - start rummaging in those bins!
How about a decorated cheese box?  
I've kept most of the box visible but brightened it up with Layered Poinsettias,
twine and a tag.  Perfect for a gift of jewellery.
 This project used a combination of boxes - from light bulbs to face cream!
A great project for your mantelpiece.
If your boxes are a little flimsy, cover the outer panels with cardboard or 
chipboard/greyboard.  This also squares up the corners really well.

So next time you take out the rubbish have another look - can I decorate it with 
Spellbinders?  It's creative and environmentally friendly!

Take care friends.

Hi Christine. Another great idea, I love how you decorated them. I do save nicely shaped boxes to decorate to hold gifts but hadn't thought of using "ordinary" ones as home decoration. I love it : ) I hope your time behind the scenes at C&C went well yesterday and you had a safe journey home. Take care.

Good morning Christine,
Lovely boxes, I have a pile of boxes in my craft room waiting to be decorated, I'm sure that will grow after Christmas, I just can't throw a nice box away.

Good morning Christine, I re use tea bag boxes a lot as they just make items that little bit stronger plus not to big to store once broken down. Keep warm in your cabin, but enjoy the views.

Wow Christine, those boxes look amazing, we usually wrap a few empty ones as decoration under the tree, these look like proper decorations!

Fab ideas for up cycling boxes. How does one get rid of the Camembert smell?

Hi Christine
Brilliant tip.
Can't stay and chat - madly making Christmas cards - always leave it to the last minute no matter how hard I try to be organised.
Take care
