Hubby often comes to me before putting something in the bin and even my grown up children pass on things they know I will class as useful not junk!!
I have been taking part in Brigit Koopsen's Gelli Plate challenge during March and have a lot of prints to use in my crafting! The larger ones are no problem - they go into a plastic box with other large prints, but the small ones were in danger of getting lost amongst my scraps.
I am sure that some of you will spot what I have chosen for my recycle makeover!
We seem to have a lot of these packets arrive!!! I realised that one of them would be an ideal size to hold my small gelli-prints.
While I was using up some of the gelli prints (some are rejects - but hey, guess what - I just couldn't throw them away!)I decided to make a container for my scissors too.
I collaged pieces straight onto the packet but measured out a piece of paper to collage onto for the coffee container.
I used my AALL and Create Scissor stamp that I bought at Rowan Tree Crafts the other week.
I stamped them onto thick paper and fussy cut them - this is the same stamp cut down although I do have my eyes on a smaller set!
The cutting words are printed out on my computer.
On the back I masked off the scissors to stamp them.
For the pot I sprinkled on some silver embossing powder as randomly as I could as I still wanted some black showing....and then stuck the paper onto the tin.
....and I used the rest of the words.
The DT have been really creative with their projects so I hope you will take a look here.
As usual the TIOT challenge runs for two weeks so this will close on 16th April. I am already wondering what you will choose to recycle!
My good friend Elizabeth will also be recycling her way towards (B)Earthday on the 22nd April!
Thanks for looking, Chris
