Here in RI we have a place called RI Recycling for Education. Schools and non profit agencies pay .30 a pound for items that companies donate instead of putting in the landfill. Items like books, end of bolt upholstery, wallpaper books, various types of paper/cardboard. You never know what you'll find. I love it I work for a non profit and we have a membership. Well I got a great deal last week! I got these little cardboard holders (brand new) for .25 each!
I spray painted the inside then used paper to cover the pink (which is fabric), I used a spray glue. The truck is from the Boys Will Be Boys cart and it was cut at 3". I inked the edges with black ink. I love that truck it's so cute. If I had more time I would have made more coordinating items. I put powder, Desitin, shampoo,etc in the little caddy.

I will definitely be making more of these for different people/occasions. Wish I didn't have to work and could craft all day :( Oh well there's always the lottery LOL!!
This is my place to share my paper crafts, scrapbooking, cards, altered and recycled projects, etc. If you use my ideas as inspiration please link back to my blog and give credit where it's due. That is my practice when others inspire me. Do not claim my work as your own, use it to enter challenges or submit for publication.
