From trash to treasure:altered clear tray

This project was born from a trash, a real one. I got this  big  tea box for our Passover Holidays 
and this tray was a protective plastic inside this  tea box. DH was on his way to the trash bin and
here I was  with this "Bingo-I want it!!" And as you can see it's a great piece for recycling with zero cost
 And as it's Mother's day around- not here in Israel, but my Mom's B-day is  in May-I altered it as a gift for my Mom, using Bo Bunny very new vintage paper line, some - or a lot of - embellishments and our fantastic CLD  new dies
 Just see how many of them are on this not so big- 8''*6''- piece of art

The  Exotic butterfly # 2 from the Small butterflies set- cut twice and layered one over another
Heartland  America  Large die  heart piece on the lower  right corner covered  with a key hole
So what is the next?The next is to buy another tea box; lucky for me , I love tea a lot! And now- you don't need this tray, just make a grid piece with our CLD  great dies and give it to someone you love
