Repurpose Challenge: July 2014

Hello everyone!
So super excited to share with you today my repurposed project made for the I Am Roses July 2014 Challenge. The challenge for this month is to recycle or repurpose something, and I had this strange plastic sleeve from a cosmetic product I purchased, that was calling my name. I could not bring myself to throw it out, as I thought it as perfectly good acrylic that could not go to waste. It really looked like nothing much, but I just couldn't part with it, so......I repurposed it, and made a little treat holder with it!

I used Big Pressie Tia from Some Odd girl, colored her up with my Copics, used some My Creative Time Dies, I Am Roses flowers,  as well as some ribbon for the transformation. You could say that I also repurposed the turquoise ribbon too. Originally they were strips from an opened package I  received, which I ended up saving, because the color was so pretty. It came to good use!
You can easily add anything you want in this little treat box, candy, jewelry, a gift card....the possibilities are endless here. It was simple to create, and fun, this particular one, perfect for a birthday celebration.
I hope you are inspired this month to repurpose something, and submit it into the I Am Roses Challenge. There's a nice prize for the winner. Make sure you follow the rules to be eligible to win, and check below for the list of products I used on this project. Thanks for stopping by!
