Time to...

,,,recycle.

Challenge #12 over at "TOMIC" wants to see some recycling going on - and we have to show the item 'before' it has been altered.
This is what I started with...a small coffee jar - suitably de-labeled and cleaned.

You might want to grab a drink at this point as there are a few more photos than usual.
After a bit of colouring, cutting & sticking I ended up with a little decorated sweetie gift jar.
After wrapping some pretty blue PP around the jar, I attached Patch Tilda and a spray of assorted flowers and ribbon...
...and the lid got a bit of the same treatment.
Quite a lot of flowers here for a small jar.
The lid had the same pretty PP wrapped around the edge of the lid after having been punched out using the Martha Stewart Doily Trim.
You can just see in this photo the background PP and the amount of blooms used.

Why not pop over to the site and see what other 'altered' bits & pieces have been produced..........................
