Myrtle the Turtle~altered art tip

My new shabby sweetie is Myrtle. She has vintage dictionary definitions on her shell! She comes in an box that I altered for her. It has various turtle ephemera on it as well as a pretty ocean blue rhinestone button and some lace.

I have been hanging on to all kinds of tidbits that I used to throw away. I cut the cotton twill ribbon handle off of an Anthropology shopping bag today and am using it on my next altered box. So before you throw anything away,consider how you might be able to use it to alter an object. Repurposing is what it's all about right now!

Here's the link to Myrtle's auction:
