The Best Is Yet To Come

Hello Crafty Friends!

How time flies! Two weeks have passed, and it is time for a new challenge over at The Male Room challenge blog where the bi-weekly challenge is all about making cards for the men in our lives. Here is my DT project ...

Each challenge, of course, has a different theme. For challenge #80 we are looking for something re-cycled or re-purposed. Lots of scope there!

I had this little tin lying around always intending to use it sometimes. Just a side note, please be aware that other brands of peanuts do exist. I got these a few years ago from a local shop in the UK.

I turned it into a desk tidy for my hubby. The newsprint paper was originally cream hence I sponged it using a few shades of blue. I simply stamped some butterflies and signposts before attaching it to my tin using double sided tape.

I then added the ribbon and die-cut words ...

... and finished off with my white embossed and die-cut sentiment label.

Fancy creating your own re-cycled, up-cycled or re-purposed make, pop over to The Male Room for more inspiration and to link up your masculine makes.

That's it from me for today
Have a lovely day!
