Creative Card Crew's Recycling!

Hi there!  Thanks for stopping by today!  I'm here to share my latest creation!  Our challenge this week over at Creative Card Crew is to recycle something.  I used two images from our fabulous sponsor, Paper Pretties!  I colored them with Copics and paper pieced her skirt and cut them out.  I cut the corner into the sides of a milk jug.  I shredded some scrap green cardstock to use as grass for the bottom of the container.  The flowers are from a SU punch.  I layered them and stuck them to the insides of the jug.  I used the Crop-a-Dile to punch holes around the opening so I could weave the ribbons through.  Where the date is stamped on the jug, I pierced holes and stuck in square brads.  I stamped the sentiment from a wood dollar stamp.  I colored it with Copics.  Then I punched it out with a label punch and put a square eyelet in to attach it to the top of the jug.

Thanks for checking it out! Hope you find some inspiration and recycle something fun!

Happy Easter!
