Second Life of a Tissue Box

Do you love to recycle? I do! I am Julia Cotrim and I love to recycle! Yes I do! 🙂
Because I call myself a recycling girl 🙂 I am always gathering used boxes – big boxes, small boxes, any kind of boxes. I also love flowers; especially violets because they remind me of my mom who is so far away from me, in Brazil.
I saved these two tissue boxes to make a beautiful flower pot holder for my violets and because Spring has finally arrived and my delicate little flowers are ready to bloom!

Julia used for her project:
Canvas Corp Orange & Ivory Tile Reverse

Canvas Corp Green & Ivory Lattice
Tattered Angels Mists – Festival, Chocolate Brown
Canvas Corp White Mini Clothespins
7gypsies Architextures Stash Paque – Enjoy
Scissors and Heating emboss

To start, I covered the boxes with paper – one in green and one in orange.

Next step was to embellish the rim with washi tape.
Try to stick it in a way that you can wrap it over the rim and make it look neat.

From 7gypsies Architextures Stash Paque – Enjoy, I chose these beautiful stickers to create a tag with a piece of cardboard.

With Tattered Angels Mists I added some final touched to the boxes!

I hope you like my idea!

Happy recycling!!!
