Altered Glass Bottles by Tee - Teresa Hall

So Elegant and not that hard to accomplish, yet how many times do you toss a glass bottle into the recycle bin without even thinking about it?

Hopefully you will be inspired by these lovely creations to create some of your own altered bottles.
These can be used as containers for a variety of things from buttons to candy or even a penny collection. Then again created below by Josie, what a lovely vase for a single flower or bouquet. Enjoy!

Recycled CD cases by John Dyhouse

Who knew that you could take those hard plastic CD cases and turn them into miniature books/works of art? Well John Dyhouse did of course! Take a look at his humorous take on the "Gentlemens Club" Then be sure to check out Josies version, a gift she made for a friend.

Alter Used Paper Towel Rolls by Tee aka Teresa Hall

Stop!!!! Don't throw away those Paper towel and toilet paper rolls until you have a look at all the incredible creations below. Tee starts out by flattening the rolls and then the creativity begins. If you want to learn more about how these are made, stop by the TR2TR group on PDA Paper Digital Art Network to see how these are created as well as many other recycled and up-cycled projects. Here is Tee's finished piece as well as all the other members that have contributed their samples. Enjoy!

Josie Hancock, she took another twist at this and used the roll as is round and created a base and lid. This lovely cylynder container holds halloween treats for her special tricksters! Thanks Josie for another technique to recycling paper towel rolls!
