A favorite thing I endeavor to do in my studio is recycling. In fact, I have built quite a reputation in that regard. While I was still working, my co-worker was so much aware of my desire to recycle that she would always ask before discarding something that might have recycling potentional.
Today a box has become a very stylish cowboy boot in honor of my son-in law's ___th birthday. The box was somewhat stylish to begin with having contained a Hawaiian styled mug from Hilo Hatties.
Sissix die, brads, cord for a lariat and the phrase created with a label maker were the basis for this design. My artist son and his fiancee embellished the envelope (with the assistance of a Rubber Baby Buggy Bumpers stamp) and the inside to make our greetings and well wishes known. The barbed wire is from an unknown unmounted stamp.
