Crafty Catz Challenge #244: Recycle It

Happy Friday!  It's time for another great challenge on the Crafty Catz blog.  This time our theme is recycle it.  So, grab something you would normally recycle and make something fabulous with it :-)  Easy enough, right?!!

Our sponsor this time is:  Fred She Said.

I've used a recycled plastic coffee container.  It is green so I had to go with a Christmas theme.  It just made too much sense not to :-)  I'm planning on filling it with homemade Almond toffee that I usually make during the holidays.  It will be a gift for one of my kiddos' teachers before Christmas break.
