Kitchen Finds

Some fun recycling challenges at Just for Fun this month. This week it is to recycle something from the kitchen.

I keep saving the plastic boxes that veggies and fruit are packed in at the Supermarket. I hadn't a clue why I was saving them until I saw this challenge.

Instant use for the largest box as it holds my Cuttlebug plates, folders and die cuts instead of them getting lost in the drawer, they are now all together and fit in the same drawer as the Cuttlebug-why didn't I think of that before I wonder??

I cut up the white lid, the black box and the blue box and ran the pieces through the Cuttlebug in a Paisley folder. Then used them to make a piece of 'what used to be called' modern art in the 60s and I always wondered if it was art at all lol.

Lots more things in the kitchen that I could recyle. Have great plans for the very big cornflakes box when it is empty :)

Thanks for the challenge.
