Go Green & Recycle

This week our design team at Little Scraps of Heaven Designs was challenged to Go Green & Recycle.  I saw this idea on a TV show called "The Spotted Canary".  As soon as I saw the new ABC's and 123's collection, I knew I had to try & make one for myself.  All you need is an empty carton.  We had orange juice, so that's what I used.
 First I sanded the carton to get the glossy layer off it.  Next I painted the carton white.  If I do another one, I think I would choose a darker color that matched my papers.  I didn't worry about painting the entire carton because I knew I was going to cover it with paper.
 Next step is to decide where the flap is going to be.  I used my t-ruler to draw my cutting lines.  If you don't have one of these rulers you might check them out.  They are cheap and so great to use!
 Use and exacto knife to cut the trash door opening.

Here's my finished project.  Isn't Oscar just the cutest?!
