Today is the 6th day of our 12 day swap in our yahoo group, An Affair with Art. Julie W. was assigned day  6 in our group. What a fun package to arrive in the mail. As you can see from the top photo, Julie recycled a cardboard container and covered it with card stock to use for mailing out her swap gift. Julie also challenged us all in group 3 to recycle the container again. After we recycle the container we will add a photo for everyone in the group to see what we came up with.

I was curious to what was inside, and imagine my surprise when I opened the tissue wrapped gift inside. The photo doesn't do this lovely piece justice because of the shadows. The note attached to the wrapping read..hang on a necklace. Pearl, crystal, tiny off white beads in a glass container, and then a larger glass vial with red and white seed beads. I LOVE IT!!!! Thanks so much Julie, for a fun revealing this morning. Very pretty, don't you think?

I love little containers and admire the way these were creatively used on your piece. The mailing container is unique as well. Seems Julie is very creative with "containers" of all kinds!
