Recycle challenge at Paper Vineyard

Hi All,

This weeks challenge at Paper Vineyard was a recycle theme. I must say, that this challenge really stumped me. It took me the longest time to decide what to recycle and what to make with it.

My keepsake tin began life as a steel-cut oatmeal container. I covered it with Bazzill paper and then embellished with silver glitter paper. I used an EK Success border punch on the edges. The "Treasured Moments" words were custom cut by Grapevine Designs at Paper Vineyard. I colored them with silver ink. The key on the top is from Bazzill and the silver trim on the top is from Teresa Collins. The ribbon and bling are from my stash. And can you believe it....no Cricut used for this project!

Hope you like it. Have a great week!
