Thank you so much dear friends for such loving comments on my Strawberry card! Sharing a recycling craft-  a CD case recycled into a Teachers Day gift
Teachers day gifts
I had been hoarding some empty Cd cases for some time now and finally put some to use!Prettied up a plastic CD case and inserted a note pad and matching pen inside to make this simple gift for my daughter's teachers on teachers day.

 I used thermocol balls on the center of the die cut paper flower.

My daughter chose the pattern paper of this recycling project and we went to town adding matching handmade paper flowers.
