Reuse, Re-purpose, Recycle Challenge

Hello Everyone!

I just want to say welcome to all the new followers and to thank you for stopping by.  I am entering this Reuse, Repurpose, and Recylce item into the Cricut Circle Challenge.

This is my first attempt.  Once upon a time this index card holder used to hold my notes and home work assignments for school.  Yeah, I was the organized one (lol).  Since I am not in school anymore I decided to re-purpose the index card holder and make it into a recipe box.  I took the flowers off of another project that I was throwing away (Recycle) and Reused them on this project.  I also used lot of scraps for this project as well.  I even retyped all the recipes in this box with the hopes of laminating them.  Hope you enjoy.  Comments are welcome.  GOD Bless
