Another recycling project~

Hi everyone!!  I have been recycling again~I can't help it !!! I took these product containers from Little Yellow Bicycle and Tim Holtz and made some easy little gifts. I have Easter on my mind~


I used Jenni Bowlin scraps.  I just can't bring myself to cut sheets of paper for this kind of crafty stuff!!


The ribbon is by May Arts.  I also used Prima, Elle's Studio, Jenni Bowlin {new bird punch}.  These don't take long at all. Just cover the cardboard insert, in the package, and then fill with treats and decorate the front~couldn't get any easier. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry to glue the embellishments to the front of the container. Works every time.  I love easy!!!



Hope you make a bunch!!!! See ya soon!
