Sugar Creek Hollow

Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge #1 TRASH TO TREASURE --
They asked us to take something that would normally be headed for your garbage can or your recycling bin and transform it into a vintage, shabby chic or primitive treasure. They were also hoping that we'd make use of our scraps in this challenge but that shouldn't be considered our trash item.
So here we go!
The first thing I found was these torn and wrinkled pieces of packing tissue.

Then I came across this little Take Out Box (yes it was unused but I never could figure out what to make with them).

 But I think I remedied that situation. Happy Easter was born from a couple of cupcake picks (leftovers from a birthday). A paper doily (picked up at a Mexican restaurant) from under a bowl of Chicken Tortilla Soup. Some lace and ribbons scraps, a piece of  12 x 12 decorative paper, some ribbon rosettes, bead trim and Voila! A Happy Easter basket I can display on my dining table!
Oh, and if you are wondering where the tissue went, it's stuffed down in the bottom of the take out box and the picks were just stuck down into it.

T%dles Peeps!

Betty, so happy to see you sharing with us at Sugar Creek Hollow! I love your Spring creation with the beautiful "found" doily and pearls. Your ribbon flowers are lovely with the background layer of lace and ribbon and what a way to use the tissue.
