# 4 for BASB, going green!

i took an old popcorn tin we got for christmas two years ago and turned it into a trash can for my scrap area. it didn't turn out exactly the way i imagined it but i tried.

i emptied all my patterned paper from my scraps and punched out scalloped squares and just started gluing them down. i used all my patterned scraps! so now all i have left in my paper scraps are solids. i also used up some old alphas i've had for years that i would not have ever used. added some old ribbon and buttons etc. and poof i have a new trash can! my oldest daughter tried to snatch it from me so i guess it turned out ok.

if you haven't checked out the other basb crew's creations i promise you won't be disappointed! so head on over and have a look. there is a great rak too!
