Cut It Up Ch#9
"Out With The Old"
Create a project that resues something from the house that you typically would not use in your papercrafting. (A pendant from an old necklace, the acetate backing from a sticker sheet, fabric from some old clothing, etc.)
Must also include a DIE CUT.
Challenge ends Jan. 9th @ NOON EST.

Here is my project for this challenge:


#521

I got this awesome idea from this site:
http://www.merrimentdesign.com/recycled-fabric-napkin-rings-from-saran-wrap-tubes.php

I used a Paper Towel roll I'd normally throw away and cut it to the width I wanted my napkin ring.

My mama and sister recently gave me some some of their material scraps (both of them are great seamstresses... I don't sew).

I followed the instructions from the site linked above, added ribbon, a beautiful hand sewn lacy flower from a very talented friend, and a name tag placement.

Tag was cut using CTMH ART PHILOSOPHY p. 60 @ 2" and embossed with the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder.  Green twine from Doodle Twine purchased at Hobby Lobby.



Come play with us. There is a great prize sponsored by CUT IT UP.


Thanks for stopping by today.
