Recycled Project

Hi Everyone!
I have a fun project to share today. I saw a few blogs challenging us to recycle. So I thought...OK sounds FUN!
First I grabbed something to recycle hmmm... got it, a peanut can that was ALMOST empty. My hubby got the rest in a snack bag for the day :)
So next I decided what I wanted to use the can for hmmm....craft room, kitchen, got it... the garage. Sounds weird I know but we come into our house through our garage so we (try to) hang our keys on hooks before we walk in but it's so full of spare keys and keys that aren't used everyday and just becomes a mess. So I made this cute little container to put on a shelf to hold all of the spare keys. Now I just need to hang the shelf :) 
The paper is from Core'dinations & Colorbok

The little house cut is from the Jubilee Cricut Cartridge. I welded them together using my gypsy

The flower is from the Storybook Cricut Cartridge largest flower starting at 2.85 & smallest at .85
Other items:
White Gel Pen – Sakura
Twine - Twinery

Have a GREAT day, thanks for stopping by:)
