Recycle Packaging


Wow you all have some lovely techniques and projects to share with us. A BIG thank you. This week for the thrifty crafter we ask you to sort out your bits of packaging be it cardboard or tins anything really. We all keep some I am sure, I know I do. We are asking you to make a project out of this stuff. I made a tag out of an old amazon box. I tore of the cover to reveal the corrugated and rubbed some metallic gold over it, I made a vase from the rest of the package and stamped text on the backing bits. The heart and flowers and leaves are made out of a beer can and coloured with alcohol inks. The heart is covered in stickles. I have attached pieces of old wire to the flowers to enable them to lift up. Thanks for stopping by and for your lovely comments. Please do look at Florence, Janet and Chrissie to see their lovely projects. Coming soon - get ready for the Out of A Hat Christmas celebrations in October :) Hugs Sandra XXX

I adore this tag Sandra - love the contrast of the bright flowers (love them) against that background. A perfect foil for the corrugated.
Hugs, Neet xx
