Supplies: 
  • 1 shoebox, with lid
  • Ribbon
  • Scraps such as magazines, fabric, beads, wrapping paper, etc.
  • Old clothing/towels
  • Crayons
  • Pencil
  • All-purpose white glue
  • Safety scissors
Instructions: 
  1. Take the lid off the shoebox and poke two holes through the lid about four inches apart.
  2. Take some ribbon and thread the two ribbon ends through the holes so that they poke out of the underside of the box lid.
  3. Tie a knot and then flip the box lid over. The ribbon is now a handle for the treasure box.
  4. Use your imagination to decorate the treasure box with leftover scraps, like cut-out magazine pictures, bits of fabric, beads, or anything else you can find around the house.
  5. Now you have your very own recycled treasure box!
