Earth Day is here and with it this fabulous wreath made by my dear friend (thank you so much Stephanie for letting me share it with everyone!):
You all know how much I love to hear "I was inspired by you ..." just before someone shares a finished project with me. All of my harping on using your garbage/product packaging for craft projects, my love of bottle caps, and all of my 3D flowers made from recycled materials has paid off BIG TIME! This fabulous wreath uses up a huge amount of colorful packaging that otherwise would have ended up in the landfill, as well as over a dozen bottle caps, and - look at that! - Stampin' Up! brown paper packaging for a bow! I can see little bits of my art throughout this wreath, but have to admit she has taken all of these ideas and executed a truly inspired piece of art!
Tip: while Stephanie hand cut each and every one of her flowers, I recommend using the Big Shot to make quick work of this time consuming task!
Happy Earth Day Everyone!
