Bloggers Challenge - Reuse/Recycle

Happy New Years Eve!  It's time for another Bloggers Challenge, this weeks theme is Reuse/Recycle.  Or as I like to call it, clean out that alterable stash!  I'm repurposing a Paper Mache Box I've had in my "collection".  To give the Paper Mache Box new life, I painted the bottom with a Ranger Paint Dabber in Rose, then added some Pumice Stone ink on the embossed section and some Liquid Pearls.



The top is covered in a piece of Prima paper, the edges with some Tissue Tape that was sponged with Pumice Ink.  The Beautiful Flower is created with Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch Flowers set, Daisy Patch Die, Elegant Single Leaves  and  Perfect Petals Die.  The sentiment is from the Classic Message set.  I added some Prima Flourishes, stickpins and Brown string to decorate the area around the flower.

Color inspiration is a loose interpretation of this weeks PDCC Color Story

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! I'll be back later this afternoon to share the link to the NEW Kitchen Sink Stamps Forum and Gallery, some of the KSS Crew will be in the forums from  Noon to Midnight EST, there will be plenty of fun Challenges, Games, Prizes, and Giveaways - be sure to join us!

I have often wondered what I could do with my paper mache collection. Now I know...this is truly stunning! I would consider the box a gift if it was given to me empty!

Lisa, I'm a sucker for reusing/recycling myself! I just made a card on 12/31/10 using a chocolate bar wrapper (sounds hideous, but it was very pretty!). I like your ultra-feminine repurposed box...what a great gift it will make. Thanks for playing with us at The Cafe!
