Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose

I love re-purposing things that normally would be thrown in the garbage.  The other day, as I was opening another package of Terrifically Tacky Tape (that stuff is great), I thought to myself there should be something I could use that packaging for.  This is the simple project I came up with.   I had some shells we collected on a trip to Hawaii last year and figured I could easily turn the package into a small memory frame.  I covered the back cardboard piece of the tape packaging with paper from Graphic45 Tropical Travelogue line, found a picture from the trip and cut it round so it would outlined by the front clear part of the packaging, and added my shells.  A little of ribbon on the top and I have a way to show off a great memory from the trip.  Display it on a small easel or hang it.
