Re-Use & Recycle Challenge - WINNER (Page 9)

Postby rozpoz » Sun Apr 25, 2010 11:01 am

Here is a good one for all of you on your stash diets....Over at The Crafty Pad this week the challenge is....

Recycle something before it goes in the bin..... It can be anything!

There is a lovely new sponsor this week... Crafty Sentiments... see the blog for more details... The link is below...
I have decorated a 1kg Coffee Tin, using Papers from the Kate Knight Wild Blossoms Range by Dovecraft and using the Crafty Pad's Digi Image of Anna by the Gate. Enlarged the image to A5 size and coloured with Promarkers. I have attached it to the tin then painted with Diamond glaze. Added some pretty Butterfly Ribbon, Foam Roses and Pink & Green Paper Flowers, all from stash.
I intend to use it as a storage pot
Thanks for looking
Hugs rozzy xx :hug:

As so many of you are on stash diets and we seem to be on a roll for recycling things...

I have now moved this post and turned it into a quick challenge to see who can upload
threecraft items that you have made using recycled items... you can be as adventurous as you like.. it doesnt have to be a card.. it can be anything crafty...

I realise that altering an item and turning it into something else, takes I will set a closing date of Sunday 9th May for you to come up with them... hope to see you joining in and look forward to seeing your creations

Thanks girls :) i'm not usually that good at recycling, so I had to think hard what to use.. we get through a lot of coffee... dont drink tea! It was just at th eright time that the tin was nearly empty... so as the challenge says..... I recycled it before it went in the bin!!
I've just realised its been three items i have made over th epast few weeks that have been recycled... the Soap powder tablet box wrapping fo rmy little journal, the cake board wall hanging and this one.......
Can any of you come up with three items to recycle?

Rozzy it is just will look fabulous on your shelf. :)

Here is mine - I used an old beer can to make the flower and swirl background and stamped the sentiment on to a piece of plastic milk

Fab card Debbie. love the colours and what a great idea to use for embellishments...we dont usually have any beer cans to try it out, but i bet they went so well using it with the embossing folders...and such a great idea too to find an alternative to stamp onto. well done...we can be thrifty if we try :) xx :hug:

You could use foil trays instead of beer cans Rozzy, or soft drink cans. I made fabric flowers from an old checked work blouse and some felt the other day. I also painted nail varnish flowers on a glass jar recently.
