Recycle it at MAWTT for Earth Week

Good morning. I am so excited to be doing this post as it is my first DT project for Moving Along With the Times (MAWTT) - thank you girls for giving me the opportunity to work with you.
This week is Earth Week and with that in mind we would like to see you use something recycled on your projects.
I have recycled this Macaroon box - we got them from Betty's Tearooms in York when we went there for John's 50th birthday breakfast last month - scrummy yummy lol!!!
