Cupcake Craft Challenge 177...Recycle!


What better way to start Monday than with a Cupcake! Yup we have a fab new challenge this week chosen by the gorgeously Fluffy Faye and it’s all about RECYCLING!

Now, if you’re me, you automatically start raiding your wardrobe to see what ribbons and buttons you can cut off clothing…if you’re the rest of the design team you have the ingenious idea of recycling cartons, boxes and other such items you may find lying around your house. I’ve written a note to myself that in future I must ‘think outside the box’ that is my craft space!

I’ve have recycled the little yellow button on my card and some gorgeous black webbing that was wrapped around the new pyjamas I received for Christmas! Pop over to Cupcake to see the inspirational projects from the design team and prepare to be wowed at some of their makes! I’m really looking forward to visiting this week’s entries and getting my much needed fill of inspiration from everyone…bring it on!

This is a close up of the glossy accents I used on the watering can...

Oh Donna! You are being too harsh on yourself. I often cut buttons and zips out of old clothing, have a whole pile of them, but when I see a recycling challenge it takes me ages to think of what I could possibly use LOL. I should have used those buttons! Anyway, your creation is fabby as usual, love the glossy accents on the watering can. Have a lovely week! keeleyxx
