Here is my first Design Team project for Glue, Scissors, Paper. The challenge was to make a project using 50% recycled materials. This is what I came up with.
I used a gift box from Christmas for the mail box, and clear plastic packaging for the flag. I printed the patterned paper myself. I didn't have the right color glitter, so I mixed pink and orange together until I had the perfect shade. I ran the flag through my xryon and then applied the glitter. I also covered the brads with glitter. They were standard gold colored office brads. I used white ink, clear embossed that, then covered them in crystal effects and dipped in glitter. The Be Mine is computer generated and covered in cystal effects. I used a Ms edge punch for the scalloped edge and inked my edges. There are cut files available for Ds and scal-just scroll down a couple posts. click for larger view
I am a SAHM (although I do babysit full time) of three children ages 19, 17 & 13. I have been married to my wonderful husband for 22 years. I love to craft, read, and bake, although crafting has consumed my time lately! I got my cricut 14 months ago with intentions of scrapbooking. I have yet to scrap a single page with it! Instead I find myself looking for "projects" I can make. My family says I have a problem. I never knew I loved paper!!!!
