Make sure to chedck out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT Member's Blogs, AND there will be a GRAND PRIZE up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "SAVE THE EARTH" project at FCCB!
How fun is that?!
For my Upcycled-Themed Project, I re-purposed an empty Strawberry Container.
Both of my little boys are collecting Box Tops for their school and these Box Tops tabs are ALL OVER my kitchen! If you have kids in grades K-8 you KNOW what I'm talking about. They are ALL OVER the place - in drawers, on the table, in the cookie jar, etc - so I knew I had to do something about it.
I always have several fruit/vegetable containers sitting in the recycle bin and that got me thinking. The Strawberry Containers would be a PERFECT holder for these Box Tops. They are big enough to hold several Box Tops - especially during the summer - and even have a little slot opening to just drop in the Box Tops tabs.
They open/close easily, so removing the Box Tops isn't a problem at all.
The polka dot ribbon about the container is also RECYCLED. It was part of another package I got as a present and saved it for later use.
The lid was embellished with papers from the Scenic Route Appleton Collection(discontinued) and Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend Collection(discontinued).
The pennants were cut from the Cricut Craft Room Party Picks and Pennants at 1.5" and 5/8" REAL. The scalloped circle is from the Cricut Craft Room Basics cut at 3" REAL. The letters were cut at .5" from the Cricut Birthday Bash Cartridge. And the apple is from the Cricut Create-A-Critter Cartridge cut at 1.25".
Now it's your turn! Let's see your Upcycled-Themed projects! Make sure to include a Cricut Cut somewhere on your project!
