Sweet Dreamers’ Challenge # 2- Reuse/Recycle

Hi friends,
Today I have a project for the Sweet Dreamers Challenge #2. The challenge was to use something we were going to throw out & recycle it instead. If yo
u've been hanging around these parts, you know this challenge was right up my alley! So while thinking about what to use, there was a knock at the door. The UPS man brought me just what I needed for this challenge: A BOX! I took the box, cut it up, & made this:

The base for my "Game Night Score Keeper."
I cut the box into six rectangles, rounded the corners, sanded the edges, inked up the sides, & used patterned paper left over from another project.

Ta Dah! The finished product:
I added a refrigerator clip magnet to hold the paper & pen & popped on the poker chip sticker to the front of the magnet (the little picture had chipped off anyway). Then I cut paper & stamped around it to tie it in with the Game Night theme. I'm making 6 of these since we get together with other friends for game nights & everyone will have one at their place when we all come over.

Thanks so much for taking a peek at my green project. I'm off to work on the rest of these so they're ready for the next game night--- Gotta go!
