Recycling for Craft Storage
Have you ever come across an old pot, jar or container that you were about to throw away and thought you could make it into something else?
I'm doing this regularly, but rarely find the time to do anything with them. So for my first altered art project of the new year, I decided to recycle an old drinking chocolate container (as pictured below). I decorated it with BasicGrey papers, paper flowers and gem stones. "I love this quote from Albert Einstein!" It sure makes a remarkable difference from the original packaging. I even lined the inside with co-ordinating textured cardstock.
It creates a fantastic pencil pot!
