I went to a craft fair at the weekend and it was all about 'upcycling' - taking something old and with a little crafting making it into something new and useful. So: old woollen blankets become trendy cushion covers, teeshirts become baby leggings, broken crockery becomes brooches, vintage buttons become jewellery, the list goes on and on - it was great seeing so many different ideas under the one roof.
Anyway, remember my post from yesterday? I told you my sour cream container contained a chocolate bar - so I got hungry! Rather than simply removing the bar and disposing of the container I decided to have a go at 'upcycling' myself and this is the result! The DSP was of course double sided, so now I'm featuring the other side of it, a lovely Regal Rose print, which I ran through with the Top Note die to give me a background for the tag and a couple of leaves.
What I used:
Card: Chocolate Chip, Whisper White, Rose Red, Old Olive, Sew Suite DSP, Kiwi Kiss (retired)
Ink: Regal Rose, Old Olive
Stamp Set: You're a Gem
Tools and other fun stuff: Top Note die, Little Leaves Embosslits die, Fancy Flower Extra Large punch, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" circle punch, Square Lattice embossing folder, button (sneak peak for July Special).
