Creata Challenge - Upcycle (From Trash to Treasure)

As I had an empty Pringles tube about to be thrown away, I suddenly had an idea for the above challenge.  I have quite a few Craft rulers now, and they stick out of my storage carousel in an awkward way, so this tube seemed to be the answer !    I stuck the butterflies on using strips of folded acetate to give the impression of movement and glazed the decoupage flower section.  The link to the challenge is http://creatachallenge.blogspot.co.uk/
