Good morning 🙂 It’s my turn again to inspire you for our Recycle challenge at the Ching-Chou Kuik Facebook group 🙂 Since I never throw anything out (just in case, you never know if it can be made into something pretty!), I have lots of choices when it’s a challenge of this theme 🙂 I started this project with an empty notecard box. I loved the shape and the construction of it!
I started by painting the whole thing with gesso, then got the lovely piggy pink paint out. Not a pink person, but I had a special little girl in mind when I started this project 🙂 I was having huge issues with anything drying because of the humidity….but I persevered and got ‘er done 🙂 I colored the image, Rainbow After the Rain, with my Copics, and cut it out with a Wonky stitched rectangle die. I glued it to the top of the box, then attached (not very) adhesive rhinestones around the edge. I had to add some Glossy Accents to the rhinestones, as they just didn’t want to stick. A few pink daisies, centered with more rhinestones, and the top was done 🙂
I had some pretty lace that I wrapped around the sides of the box, then added a pretty rhinestone clasp. For the inside, I found a mirror in my stash, which I edged with the same not sticky rhinestones that I used on the outside. I added a few of the daisies for a pretty touch. For the bottom, I took a piece of pink fabric and a piece of sparkly tulle and wrapped them around some quilt batting to make a pillow for a necklace for a sweet girl who loves anything sparkly!!
We would love to see your project, using a beautiful image from Ching-Chou’s Etsy store!! You can recycle anything….cardboard from a cereal box, string, ribbon from a top (the ones that are on the inside to help keep it on the hanger), or anything else that someone else may have thrown in the bin 🙂
