"Recycle!" this Week at Pixie Dust Studio!

The challenge at Pixie Dust Studio is to recycle something that you have around the house that would normally be tossed out.
I chose the image "Frankie's Fun House Fairy" from the Pixie Dust Fun House Collection.
The flowers were made from a recycled brown paper lunch bag. A portion was cut from the bag and sprayed front and back with Krylon Make It Acid Free spray. Then two flowers were layered, glued to the card, and a rhinestone was placed in the center.
Can you guess what else was recycled? The shaker was made from a plastic flower container!
I have a tutorial at the bottom of this post that explains how I did it.
 What will you find around the house for this week's challenge?
