Magnolia Down Under Challenges # 80

Ohhhh - It is Magnolia Down Under Challenges time again! This week the challenge is Reduce, Reuse and Recycle! Got ya thinking? I know I was a little stumped when I first saw the challenge... but, it was fun!

I used a box that my Copic refils come in and I altered it. I opened it up, cut off the flaps and flattened it down and went to work.


The beauty of altering something relatively small is you can use scraps of paper from other projects to decorate it.  The buttons are from my Mum, the green ribbon on the tag is recycled from a parcel.

This cute little Tilda is Tilda with small gift and is from the new You are So Special collection. I made the tag by cutting a piece of card and using a Nestie Label 4 on the top to cut the shape.

I hope you have some time to pop over to Magnolia Down Under Challenges to play along this week.

I would like to enter my tag and pocket into these challenges:
7 Kids College Fund - Challenge yourself (I challenged myself to alter recycled box)
Simon Says Challenge - Bingo (Buttons, Flowers, Glitter)

I love the colorcombo you've used, papers I would have never picked together but when you use them like this the result is gorgeous and bright and just puts a smile to your face.
