It was my turn to present John Next Door with the challenge goodies for this week and I was thinking 'Black & White'.
I thought I would try something different than a card so I recovered a glass jar from the recycling bag. I recycle as much as possible and here in Spain there are bins for paper, glass and plastic / cartons / tins, and even used cooking oil, on nearly every road, so that is great.
I used PVA glue and covered it with torn pieces from a novel used in a previous Sunday Mojo (used here). Then I really just decided to cover it with all the bits, I used alot more flowers besides cutting one out from the paper - the big black one. For the lid I cut a scalloped circle from the grey coloured paper, then cut into it so that it would curve down the lid sides and tied the black ribbon around it. I used a hot glue gun to stick everything onto it for a more secure finish. I inked the flowers on the lid with memento ink pad and added some pearls.
I think I will make more of these for gifts and fill them with bath salts or sweets.

This is the pack I gave John, oops I have just realised I did not use the buttons, but then again, we don't have to use everything and we can add to it.
