Growing in Unity Day 1

Hey there!  So I finally took a week to be the Growing in Unity gal!  I've done it a couple of times a few years ago but since I started coordinating I always forgot to grab a week for myself.

As you probably already know I love Unity Stamp Co!  I have to say I love love coordinating this fabulous customer program for Unity.  The schedule for the year fills up super fast as soon as I say sign up!  Everyone LOVES it!  So thank you to Angela Magnuson for offering this week after week!

Today I wanted to share with you some "boxes" I made from repurposing food containers.

Here is one I made this weekend:


This is a smaller box that fits the Unity Itty Bitty's perfectly.  So this box contains many of my "Seasonal" Unity Itty Bitty's, like Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas.  This box was originally a box of Cocoa.

Here is another box made from the Trader Joe's K Cup box:




Box of these boxes are of course using my Unity Stamps as well as embellishments from Webster's Pages. 

Thanks for letting me pop on in here for a week of Growing In Unity!!  Please come join us on our FB page for inspiration and a chance to get in on the action.  If someone can't do their week I usually go out to the FB page asking for last minute fill ins.

Don't forget swing on by UNITY STAMP CO today as they have great sales each week and usually end on Monday night!

Till tomorrow!

Very cute boxes. Isn't it fun to try to repurpose stuff instead of trashing a perfectly good item. We used to call it recycling things but whatever it is called its a fun challenge. The little owl is so cute.

Donna K said...

LOVE both of these boxes!! How fun to make something we'd all be pitching in the recycling bin into something so useful AND cute! Thanks for the great tip on how to store some of our Unity treasures. Happy GIU week!! Happy you were able to get yourself in on the fun this year!

I am such a sucker for banners, and they look so great on the first box. You have inspired me to go to TJ for the k cup box and I do not even use them :)

These are so cute and a great way to Organize your Unity stamps! I have my stamp sets in plain plastic bins and this would make it much nicer!
