It ain't easy being green...

Anyone else love that Kermit the Frog song? It's a favorite of mine. This time I'm talking about being green as being environmentally conscious. I love to recycle whenever I can. This tin is from Prima flowers. I love Primas and use them all the time, so I figured I needed to find a use for the empty tins. Also if you look to buy tins, they can be pricey, so this is not only environmentally good, but also a real money saver!

The stamp is Babs from Rubber Romance. She is perfect for this type of project. She looks so relaxed in her bubble bath, makes me want to go take one!
I made this little tin to use either as a gift for a friend, or maybe to leave out in my bathroom. I have one of those fabulous soaking tubs, that just doesn't get much use, maybe seeing a nice bath set near by would encourage me to soak.
I filled it with packets of oatmeal milk bath. My blogger buddy Marti shared the recipe with me. I scented mine with Eucalyptus Mint oil. It smells so yummy. I love this little gift set, and can't believe how little it cost me to put it together. I have several more tins I've been saving, so I'll probably make some of these sweet little gifts to give around the holidays.
Thanks so much for stopping by today! Hope you are having a great week, we're enjoying some crisp fall weather here.

Recipe:
Stamps: Babs from Rubber Romance
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: MME patterned paper, Bashful Blue, PTI ssw
Embellishments: MS ribbon, primas, twine, PTI buttons, stickles, copics, modge podge

Great way to go green & it's packaged so beautifully. I love milk bath so I guess I'll need to talk to Marti or.... what does a girl have to do to get on your gift giving list? (jk ;) Have a great week. Big Hugs!
