I started with an idea…

Little Toots has been in diapers for 14 months now and that is a lot of BABY WIPES! I am usually thinking "recycle" and when it came time to throw out the baggie with that nice plastic lid on it...I tore it off. 
I looked it over and thought...I wonder?
It was off to my studio with a IDEA!
Born again Crafter 
thrifty thursdays #7 
Creative Craft Challenge 
Recycle
Paper Issues 
Linky Party

NOW...with the results...
A holder for "MY CARD"
I went ahead and designed the top and the underside...for display purposes.
I filled in the opening with clear plastic and framed it off. If you made one with not so much detail it would be good to throw in your purse but...
beings I go all out with detailing... I had fun!
Here it is all the way opened up so you can get the just of what this recycled lid looks like. 
Thank-you to my inspiration of sketches/challenges
now and in the past...I have been able to get a lot done, gain new insight, wonderful comments, followers and the push to continue with my heART!
Thanks-you all so much, Tootsie
