Cupcake 177... Recycle

Well good morning to you all, how brilliant to see you here. So, time for another Cupcake...

Wow! You don't like to make things easy for us, do you? We had so many entries last week, it was reeeeeeeeeally hard to choose our Cuties. Thanks for taking the time to join us. :)

What with Christmas being so busy for everyone, we haven't had any Guest Designers for the past few months. If you've been chosen as a Cupcake Cutie recently, keep an eye on your inbox, because we've started stalking you all again.

So, I guess you'd like to know what our new Challenge is? This week, The Cupcakes have let me out of the box and I've chosen:

... Recycle ...

We'd like to see you use something you've recycled from another item on your creation. Was it a cheese carton, which you've turned into a lovely storage box? Have you taken something from your Christmas cards? Whatever it is, we don't mind. Just be sure to tell us what you've used in your post. If you don't mention what you've recycled in your post, you will not be eligible to win any prizes from our sponsors.

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 05 February to place your entry for this Challenge. Have fun...
