Recycling the world one toilet paper roll at a time...

So yes I guess I have nervous energy today, because my mind has been in least in the craft department.

I thought about this little favor / candy cracker when I was changing the toilet paper roll...because apparently they only like to be changed by me.

I used Chatterbox paper because it is double sided and thinner, some glue strips and ribbon - done. I had the thought after I had them together that using decorative scissors on the ends would have been cute. I added a Quickutz die as accent, but I think they are cute without too. Gotta keep this idea in mind for Christmas.

For this one recycled some plastic packaging that stamps came in. I stamped my images on the plastic with Staz-On.

For the birthday card; I stamped the cupcake on plastic, punched a circle in the patterned paper and then glued my plastic to the back. I used a scrap to make a pocket on in the back to add my star glitter to make a shaker box.

So the Laugh out Loud card; I stamped on the plastic with the text and a flower. I also stamped the same images on the paper in pink ink. I cut out the flower and text strip and stamped them to the card for a carefree feel.

Too fun to make and it felt good to salvage some garbage. See what you can salvage. Have fun!
