Recycled Plastic Globe: 57/365
I used a plastic clamshell salad container (#5) that held my dinner tonight and made a snow globe. The picture was from my childhood book, The Three Bears (1977), with illustrations from F. Rojankovsky. I cut out the shape from plastic, traced and colored the page below with Sharpie, put it in the oven at 325 degrees until it shrunk, then dabbed white glitter paint on the globe. My only regret is that I didn't have more Sharpie colors and had a chance to take more time with the snow, but it's 11:55pm, cutting it close;)
