Ooooooh, have you seen what you can win?


Yep, there's a rather fabby prize up for grabs over on Tilda & co this week & all you have to do is recycle your mum...
Well ok, thats not entirely true, but there is a fabby prize if you make something on a mothers day theme with something you've recycled ;)
So I made this little box thing {there are tutorials for these all over the place, this one is probably the clearest}, but instead of using coasters I used some mountboard & chopped it up to make my own coasters. I recently found out that a local framing shop throws out all the middle bits of mounts they've cut, how wasteful is that??!! I'm now drowning in mountboard cos they very kindly let me have loads of it ~ after the rather long lecture I gave involving the future of the planet, carbon footprints, global warming, all those poor trees...

Anyway, to see the gorgeous prize & the other DT's work go & have a look here ~ I can't wait to see how you recycle your mothers!
