Recycling time over at Pollycrafts Monday!

(Please scroll down for my Make It Monday DT post!)


It's Pollycrafts Monday and this week we are challenging you to recycle! Get hunting about the house and see what you can re-use on your creation!  Here is what I made...

 
 

I found an old notelet box that I recyled it into a Xmas card box - I'm gonna fill this with blank Xmas cards for my mum!  I thought Chester's Letter from the recent new release would be perfect for this - and I just luuuuurve this little monkey!  Now just gotta make those cards to go with it...

Here is the box in all of its original glory...

This was so fun to do and I hope you can join in the challenge as I can't wait to see what you recycle!  The prize for one lucky winner is a £10 voucher to spend at My Mums Craft Shop.

 

I am entering this card into the following challenges:






Paper/cardstock: Bazzill cardstock, K&Company Peppermint Twist, DCWV glitter cardstock
Stamps: Pollycrafts Chesters Letter
Mediums: Copics
Accents: ribbon from stash, red grosgrain ribbon by Paperchase
Tools: Sizzix embossing folder, Nestabilitie dies, Martha Stewart snowflake border punch

Mmm, I wonder how many cards you'll fit in there?? Chester is so cute and he looks fantastic on the top of the lid. Awesome idea.
