Do you recycle? I try to, but I have a 14 year old Grandson that tells me I am not a hoarder, I am a collector of many things lol.   I do have a tendency to hold on to small things, labels, buttons, little boxes etc, which brings me to my Mum's 87th birthday tomorrow.  We bought her a beautiful elephant brooch (she loves elephants) but it came in a very pretty little bag and I thought no I want it in a box so started going through the drawers and found a ring box which the brooch fitted into perfectly.  Then I turn on my computer and find the this fortnights challenge at Try it on Tuesday is called 'Recycle it'.  Perfect timing.

First thing I did, was use an elephant digi, which I changed from holding a peanut to holding a card with Mum on it, coloured it with bright colours and added lots of bling, then placed the image inside the lid as a small gift card.

On the outside of the box I used colours to match the elephant brooch, gold  paper, pearls,emerald bling,  silver trim around the edges, green bow, white and gold roses.  So happy with the result, I'm going to dig a bit deeper and find some more of these little boxes, they make great trinket boxes when decorated. Lots of photos, because I tried to get it from each angle.

First is a picture of the little box, white and gold.

This little box is entered into the Recycle It challenge at Try it on Tuesday
