Bah humbug - recyling or green

This is week over at Bah Humbug the challenge is to use green or recycle. Tonight I have done both. I have used an acetate box that was off my grandaughters money box.  I made a lid for it out of card. I then wrapped sticky ribbon around the bottom and top of the acetate. To decorate the lid I recycled a piece of stamping I had used before. Put a red bit of used envelope on top another piece of stamping and then cut a robbin off  last years christmas cards. For inside the box I just cut a piece of green card that was already on the bit of money box card. I am going to fill it with a decorated candle or pot-pourri at Christmas for a little present.  Thanks for visiting. Happy crafting to you all. Hugs x ChrisB
