I made this shring using the plastic case my birth control comes in each month. I kind of thought that, given the former contents, a small tribute to the wonders of modern medicine was in order.

The outside. The package itself is bright green (you'll see when I post pictures of the inside) so I covered it with some washi tape. I found a picture of a very cool, nonchalant-looking young woman sipping some tea. I wasn't sure what else to do with the outside, but then I realized I had some Scrabble tiles that would fit perfectly, so I glued those on as well.

Inside left. We've got a bird in a tree trying to feed the screaming baby. I love kids but I do not want one of my own. Me trying to take care of an infant would be almost as strange as a bird trying to take care of a human baby. I think I'm going to need to find some text for the space just above the baby's head. It'll come to me.

A fancy young lady in a pretty dress and some (inactive) pills strung into a lovely necklace glued into the shrine with some gross messy hot glue. (I need to get some superglue before I make my next one). I believe that a woman can be just as feminine and fulfilled without children as with them. Another worry doll because I can't be the only one who finds herself worried about babies even while on the pill.

Wide shot of the inside. It's definitely missing something, but I'm going to wait for more inspiration to come to me.

So there it is, my first shrine in possibly a decade! I think that, the next time I use one of these packages, I'll paint it with acrylic paint or something, because the green is just super jarring. There are a few other rookie mistakes, but I really just made this thing as practice, so that's to be expected.

Looking for poly-clay earrings: one bacon, one fried egg. Also, a mishmash of red/orange/gold bracelets--beaded, braided, bangles, whatever! If you have the supplies, let's talk! (Please?) I'll swap all kinds of things in return!

I got two words for ya, honey:  tubal ligation.  But only if you're really sure.  It worked for me.

Great shrine!
I like that you included a biological clock. 
What is the purple and green thing?

You need something in the blank space around the woman--maybe something indicative of what you're doing instead of raising kids.  Like vacationing in Hawaii, gambling, drinking fine wine, retiring early...  printed words or 3D items would work.

Measure once, cuss twice.
