Earth Day is just around the corner and what better way to express creativity than by using recycling in a project?

Since Easter is also around the corner, this project gets three birds—or rabbits—with one box. An old jewelry box gets a new life with a layer of dark green paint. A layer of lighter green paint mixed with glue gives that wonderful cracked effect when it dries. Edges were inked in white.

A sentiment clipped from a magazine is smudged with green and yellow inks to blend with the box.
|A teabag tag (I love Yogi Tea) affixed with a fancy brad provides a sage summation.|
The additional joy of romping about on a beautiful weekend among blooming flowers and budding bushes while playing with camera angles was the perfect creative finale.
And now, without having to print a thing, I can share the photos with you!
I'm so grateful for sunshine and the creative variety of life on this planet. To express my appreciation, I've been an avid recycler for decades, and try to dream up ways to reuse things.
Q: What are you grateful for? And while you're at it, tell us about a creative new use you found for an old object...
Thank you for visiting!
