Bunny Basket

Welcome.  I  hope you're enjoying all the amazing projects by the DT.  You should have arrived here from Kitty's blog. If not, you need to go back to the beginning here and follow along.
As you know this month's challenge is to "Reuse and Recycle" something on your project.  And use the Tic Tac Toe board.
You know how it works.  Use 3 squares in a row, Vertical, Horizontal, Diagonal. If you use the left to right diagonal, you need to use 3 recycled items.

I got a little ambitious this time and used all the items. (except I really only "reused" 1 item and left over paper from a previous project)  The left over paper was from a pair of cards I made awhile back.

And my "Reused" item is a section of a egg carton.

Here is what I created.

I cut the foam egg carton to hold the 6 eggs and made the box from foam core.  I adhered the glitter to the buttons with Glossy Accents.  I popped up the image on homemade light purple foam squares.
This was a fun project. It's always good to be able to use stuff that you have laying around.  Hopefully you'll join in the fun and create something for the challenge. And don't forget to comment on all of the DT's blogs.  You could win some of these new images.

After you comment, head on over to Jacki's blog and see what shes created. If you get lost along the way, here's the full list.
