Reuse, Reduce, Recycle – it’s a FCD Blog Hop!

Wohoo! FINALLY!!! It’s time for a new Firecracker Designs blog hop. This month, the theme is going green in some way – and you will find a lot of inspiration along the way, aaand some blog candy!

More info about the hop will be found further down. I want to share my project first!

My niece turns 5 today. She’s getting big. And I decided to make her a little treat with the help of an old flower packaging. This one:Förpackning And with the help of some stamps and a die and some sweets, it ended up like this.Tesa_Jan05The stamps used are the from the beautiful Paper Roses set and the bird is from the Yoo HOOO! set. I love how this project turned out! Love my new Fleur de Lis die and I love the stamps! I’ve seen this kind of projects before, but never tried it myself, but wow, it’s simple, and the result is really cool.

Well that’s it. Now over to the blog hop info:

*********************************

The official start time of this Hop is Friday, at 8:00 AM (EST). If you arrived early, please be patient as all the links may not be live yet.

This is a “circular blog hop” where the only beginning is wherever you start!! You will know you are at the end of your blog hop when you’ve come back to the blog you’ve started from! (It’s not a huge circle…so it should be easy to remember where you started.)

The winner will be chosen from a mystery blog hostess that we don’t even know who it will be until the hop is over…so that’s why you’ll want to leave a comment on EVERY blog, so you don’t miss out!

**To find out if you’ve won… you will be contacted by Pamela via e-mail (so be sure to leave it with your comment.) and you can also find out on Pamela’s blog after the blog hop ends on Mon, at 8:00 PM (EST).**

Now, to continue the circle, you will need to hop on over to

~~* KARYN *~~

and keep going until you’ve come back to where you’ve started! Thanks so much for playing along with us and we hope you have a great time!

Thanks for joining us!!!

Amazing what you came up with--I actually keep those kinds of packages as I "knew" there was something great to use them on--LOL now I know what and I've got a couple of Birthdays coming up--you could add just about anything in there :-)

Great recycling of packaging......now to figure out how to reuse some of the packaging they use today - have to cut it apart. Love the colors you used and she'll love it also

Just beautiful!!! It is so cool to see what creative minds can come up with using "found" objects. My mind just isn't that creative but I sure can copy good! Thanks for such a great idea. Thanks also for your time that you put into getting this blog hop ready for us.

Love how this is 3D. You did a great job with the colors and design. Think I would have to see it up close or should I say "hands on" to totally understand what it is that you are using to recycle.
Anyway, it turned out real purty.

Diane said...

I keep all my packaging, too, but this is an awesome project....she will LOVE it!!
