Lots to do & Stampin' for the weekend - Recycled

Both Lots to do and Stampin' for the week-end have challenged followers to make something from something else this week. Some call it Recycling others Altering.

Have heard of altered lids but never made one before, saved this last time a jar of something finished just in case... the inside and edge of the lid has been decorated with alochol ink. A brad attaches the ribbon behind. The Stamped acetate filling the lid was originally for the box below but it did not work out and has been recycled here. The sun and moon embrace was also made for the box and also recycled here.

No idea what to do with this but have used a longer piece of ribbon to attach more to as and when.....


  1. Well you certainly recycled Zoe - thanks for joining the Lotstodo Challenge with such a great piece
