It's dare day, and I get to set the dare too..whooohooo!
This week I'm on a recycling mission. I dare you to look again at the plastic packaging around you and transform it into a brand new card. It could be food packaging, craft packaging or just something plastic that's destined for the bin or recycling. Trim it, die cut it, alcohol ink it, crop-o-dile it, give it a new lease of life then share it via your blog for us all to see. Happy Recycling!
I've used these - clear stamp packets from my Autumn Leaves stamps. I kept them with the vague thought that if I ever passed the stamps on to anyone else they might come in handy. Yeah right! Like I'm going to let my beloved AL stamps go anywhere! Anyways, chopped up each side of plastic makes a fabaroo see through card blank for the best price of all... nothing! I added handcut paper from the K&Co Addison range and a couple of brads. I used those sheets of sticky dots to attech the swirly bits to the acetate and they hardly even show on the reverse. The paper is all sparkly and lovely in the light - what little of it there is as its blowing a hooly out there and tipping it down.
Other news from the north east, well our car is finally dying, poor old Punto's done us well but is feeling every hour of her 12 years of hard graft and is crying oil. Any top tips on buying second hand cars? It's such a confusing world especially when you just want something to get you there as cheap as possible rather than be flash! I'll keep you updated on the exciting car saga...lol
