Papercraft Star 24 Now Open !!!


Our challenge this week was to create a project from something we recycled.

Everyone in Oregon recycles, there is never another thought about it. Oregon was the first state to pass a bottle bill, over 30 years ago, and our children don't know any other way. If we don't recycle, then we re-purpose!

This is a gift bag originally given to my by my oral surgeon - it was filled with gauze, pills and instructions. As I flitted out the door dangling my oh so charming, silver embossed bag I felt quite beautiful - except for the Novocaine induced drool, lopsided face and gauze packed jaw. Now it will become a gift for another.

I have not used the Stampin' Up products before, and I loved the paper, and that lace, isn't it fabulous.

Check out our challenge this week ! Link up your submissions - I am dying to see what everyone creates with this fun challenge !! Submissions close on Saturday, noon (Eastern,USA). See you there !
