Limelight Project Parade

Limelight Celebrates Earth Day! Earth Day is right around the corner (and Arbor Day, too), so let's go GREEN! Our challenge was to make a project using recycled packaging, stamp some trees (there are LOTS at Limelight), make a seed packet pouch... Whatever!

So I recycled a snack box and made this treat packaging:
I started by cutting off the top and smaller sides of the box and trimming it to 4-1/2" x 6". I covered the printed sides with paper, and this becomes the inside. I cut a window in the front with my rectangle nestabilities. I stamped a tree and bird, cut them out, and glued them to the new front which used to be the inside of the box. I added the sentiment and a couple buttons. I took a clear cello bag and put some green bunny peeps inside, then used my cropadile to punch two holes in the top. The ribbon goes through the bag as well, keeping it in place. I thought the bunny peeps were perfect for my "forest scene", lol!

Thanks for stopping by, don't forget to see what the rest of the chicks made!
Supplies:
stamps - Giggle Grove
ink - memento
acc - offbeat buttons, brown satin ribbon, white crochet thread, clear cello bag, peeps
