Recycle, Reuse, ...


Another Challenge I hosted on Paper Wings for Online Seminar, this one was, Recycle , Reuse, make something creative out of something you would normally throw away. This is my sample, I cut up a soda can and ran it thru an embossing folder! I am so exited by the possibilities! If you try this be really careful when you are cutting up the can, it is really sharp when it is all jagged! I also would round the corners if I did this again, but other than that it's really cool! The aluminum is so light it really didn't add anymore weight than a few layers of paper would. I used the stamp sets Bitty Bugs, and Tag Tid Bits, from TAC . What can you think of to use in a creative way that you would normally toss out? I have a few Schwann boxes that I want to make into something, I have trouble tossing them out because they are such nice boxes!! Have a great day!!
