Hey Everyone ... it's time for another fun challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafter's!
Today our challenge theme is:
RECYCLE, RENEW, REUSE
Use at least ONE recycled item on your project/card.
I happen to have made TWO projects for this challenge.
First is a RECYCLED Cricuit Cartridge Box. I decided to decorate it and turn it into a gift for my friend who has a birthday coming up and is a TEA LOVER!!
The tea pot & tea cup were created using a new technique I recently learned using Glitter Peel by Elizabeth Craft. HERE IS A LINK TO THE ELIZABETH CRAFT SITE. The designer paper used is from K & Co. and DCWV. The leaves were created using the Marianne LR0156 die and aqua cardstock. The floral circle under the teapot was cut from the same floral K & Co designer paper using the Memory Box #98189 Catalina Wreath die and sponged using Tim Holtz Dusty Concord distress ink. The sentiment comes from a CTMH stamp set and the lace is by Wright, purchased at JoAnn's. A few touches of purple Stickles adorn the flower centers and edges of the box.
For my second project I decided to finally do something with the box that my husbands new wallet came in a few Christmas's ago. When he received the wallet as a gift, he handed me the empty box and said, "I suppose you'll be wanting to do something CRAFTY with this!" LOL
And I finally have!
I decided this would be a good item to use for a small set of Note Cards.
Products used are:
Papers: DCWV Mariposa designer paper, white cardstock. olive cardstock
Accessories: Michaels green organza ribbon, K&Co. Brenda Walton Flora & Fauna Butterfly Adhesive Chipboard #30-599635, Marianne LR0157 flourish die
I have really grown to love these 'Trash to Treasure' challenges and if you haven't tried this type of challenge . . . NOW'S THE TIME! Please come join in the fun at The Sisterhood of Crafter's! I anxiously await being inspired by your creation!
