Make, Bake and Take...

Recycling is so much fun! Not only are you helping mother earth, but you sure can create some very unique and personalized gifts with them.  This is a picture heavy post, so I'll just explain that the challenge happening over at Top Tip Tuesday is to recycle with something you might otherwise throw away or contribute to the recycling center.
 Here is my DT project  

I thought it would be fun to make a table setting specific to the image that I was so graciously allowed to use from Bugaboo titled JJ Baking.  I've designed here a table runner,placemat, decorated jar to use for centerpiece or whatever, name placard for sitting arrangement and a napkin holder.
Recycled items I've used are Alfredo jar, 2011 calendar, cereal box, freezer paper, soda can and mesh bag for oranges.

Recycled Cereal Box
 
 
 
 So STOP! Don't throw that away and make something REALLY cool and useful with it. 
 
Challenge Theme:  RECYCLE IT!
 
Thank you also to our extremely generous sponsors:  Bugaboo Stamps (7 digis of your choice) and Ooh La La Creations (1 of their CDs)
 
Hugs n' Happy Stamping...

Challenges I would love to enter this into:
