Celebrating Earth Day... Once Project at a Time!

Welcome to sbartist : daylight musings for LeslieRahye's Second Annual EARTH DAY Bloghop.

I love to recycle and I always try to creatively repurpose everyday items - and - this has me constantly making things and always finding something new to ARTfully Upcycle. This project is an altered Laughing Cow Cheese Box all decked out to present a gift card for a birthday party!

With some patterned paper scraps, some bits of ribbon and a little bling, this box has been transformed to a fun and festive gift card holder... complete with a repurposed candle, too! It doesn't take a whole lot of supplies or time to create a handmade gift box - and can be changed up to fit your occasion, whether a birthday, a wedding or a thank-you! To watch a how-to of how I created this, please CLICK HERE.
