Sweet Treat

Here we go on this Christmas Eve, so I have decorated a used cotton wool bud container with some American 'Back To School' papers with a little treat of sweets to give to a little girl or boy when they return to a new term back at school in the New Year.

I love to upcycle as using packaging that would normally go to waste gives you a good feeling. Christmas always brings us loads of packaging so why not look at it and try to use it in a creative way?  The twine was actually on a box of Christmas cards so even that is upcycled too.
