Recycled Crafts – FaveCraft Blog Hop

We're hopping again with all of our friends at FaveCraft! This time we're all sharing recycled projects! Great ideas and inspiration on how to create wonderful projects using everyday objects, leftover materials, things you don't need anymore and even things you want to throw away.

My project is a printer's trey. But this is not your ordinary printer's trey, the one you buy at the craft store. My trey is made from an old tea box I didn't need. At first I wanted to throw it away, but then I saw its compartments and I had an idea: why not turn it into a printer's trey?!

I painted it and added photos. To make it interesting I gave each photo a little curve. Then I added a few handmade embellishments. I made it really simple and easy because as it turned out, I ended up teaching it in a few classes for girls and teenagers.

Have fun creating!



  1. That's really neat. I love it! But what kind of tea box is that? I don't think I have ever seen one like that.

  2. Love it.....great way to be green with a big impact!

  3. Very cute. I love to do framed wall art, too. I like the idea of the "curve" in the pictures for interest. The mini vignettes you created are sweet. I'm sure the teens and kids loved the class.
