It is time for our monthly blog hop at Paper Wings - this months theme is "green" either green card or to recycle something and go green. I chose to recycle. My first item is a Starbucks bottle filled with round teabags then a green bellyband (embellished a bit with the scor-bug) and on the lid a round topper with the tea bag from Tea for Two, I attached the cup with a narrow pink ribbon and pop dots and the lid can screw off easily. This is for my secretary at work who never questions what I ask her to do and does it with a smile. I don't know what I would do without her. My second project is a bandaid tin recycled to hold my precut ATC cards. This tin is special as it holds our premium white cs which I use for coloring with Copics. I used retired paper on this tin as it only took a scrap and that is what I had - I am all about using up all those scraps. Now for more GREEN projects go visit:
