Stamping Trash To Treasure!

Ok, I have to admit I am one of those people who loves to save everything hoping I will make something later down the road. What do I mean? Well, can you guess what I used as a box template? Yeah, your right a soap box! I love the size and thought hmmm, I can make something with this. I drew large flowers on cardboard and covered with TAC's beautiful Catelynne Fly With It Collection. The front flower was a scalloped punch and I decided to chalk the flowers to add a vintage look to them. Luckily my mother knits and has every color yarn you can think of. Great for embellishing a button from my mom's button collection. I used a tag from Catelynne Paper Pack Tags, TAC Ribbon from the same paper collection. The handle also has ribbon with Large Eyelets. The TAC stamp set I used for the Tag which says "Thanks" is from the "Circle Sampler" still can be purchased from our main catalogue. I found some packaging paper and decided to stamp circles and thanks from the stamp set. I also chalked the box and package paper. I am not sure if you can see it clearly. I just love creating from things you have already or find! I know I am not the only one who loves creating from trash! So if anyone would love to come forward and admit to creating art from their trash, please let me know so I can see your creations! Remember the first step is just admitting that you stamp your trash:)
