Recycled with Ruby Red.

Managed to get back into my craft room  to make some inspiration pieces for my
#54 Butterflies + R is for Recycling with Ruby Red.

First piece is using a Pringles Pot. I forgot to take a photo of it before I started (but you all know what a Pringles pot looks like!) I did take a photo of it once I had cut it down and painted it red.  I also used some anti slip matting to cover. 

I raided my stash for everything else and  went to town  with my trusty  glue gun! I used large wooden beads for the feet and smaller metal beads for the closure.  Butterrflies were made using Memory Box and Poppy Stamps  die cut matching butterflies. 

I have had the clock /bird metal piece in my stash for at least 2yrs just waiting for the right time!

Inside of box which I covered with cream silk off cuts in my stash  at least 20yrs old.

I'm so glad to hear you are on the mend. Wow, what a great box you've made. This is just beautiful and I love how you go back through your stash and find the perfect embellishment. Twenty years is a long time to keep something so it must have been very special to you. I'm happy you used it in such a fantastic project.
