Monday Mania With ...ME!

Yup, I am hosting this week's challenge over at Club Anya and Friends! I was so excited when I got an email from Amy asking me to host today's challenge! It is such an honor! You all know how much I LOVE The Greeting Farm!

What's the challenge? Your mission is to ALTER A RECYCLED 3D ITEM! I love to see everyone's wonderful card creations but I love seeing 3D items even more! So for this challenge, I would love to see a recycled 3D item! Why recycle? Because I have a lot of containers, containers I have kept from stuff I bought. Sometimes I even buy things because of the pretty packaging! LOL

Think of this challenge as 'anything but a card' with something recycled. It doesn't have to be a container, such as a baby wipe tub, empty chocolate box, or a bottle that you are recycling. It can simply be a button from a shirt, a ribbon from a present... anything as long as something is recycled on your project.

I hope everyone finds some time to play along! I would love to see what you guys come up with!

First up, I have this chipboard container laying around forever so I altered into a gift card set!

I altered it with My Mind's Eyes papers along with Fleur Anya. Since there is a opening on the front, I sealed it and made it into a shaker!


Here is the whole set.

Next, I have this roasted pea can to alter.
I stamped different Anya's in Cocoa ink. No coloring needed!
Viola! A candy bouquet! I made this one for my nieces birthday last week! She LOVED it!


Alrighty, hope everyone enjoyed looking at my project and can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks a million for stopping by!
