First project for Glue, Scissors, Paper!

Here is my first Design Team project for Glue, Scissors, Paper.  The challenge was to make a project using 50%  recycled materials.  This is what I came up with. 
I used a gift box from Christmas for the mail box, and clear plastic packaging for the flag.  I printed the patterned paper myself.  I didn't have the right color glitter, so I mixed pink and orange together until I had the perfect shade.  I ran the flag through my xryon and then applied the glitter.  I also covered the brads with glitter.  They were standard gold colored office brads.  I used white ink, clear embossed that, then covered them in crystal effects and dipped in glitter.  The Be Mine is computer generated and covered in cystal effects.  I used a Ms edge punch for the scalloped edge and inked my edges.  There are cut files available for Ds and scal-just scroll down a couple posts.
