December Blog Hop: Trash!
Blog Hop?? Already??
Actually, I've been thinking 'trash to treasures' a lot the past few days, but with no camera to photograph, I thought I was doomed. Then, word came that Santa might be bringing me a camera, so I started to think of things to make...
On Christmas Eve we do 'crackers', and as the paper pieces were being thrown away, I saw them in a new light.
See the popped crackers?? They have little toys inside, which we pretty instantly throw away, so don't ask me why we do them~ I guess we love to wear the little paper hats inside, lol...
How do they look as favors?? I punched the Marvy pink scallop circles in Pure Poppy, and cut the torn crackers into pieces. They were already a tube, and you can see how the tubes were cut to allow the middles to fold in. I hope I'm making sense. I then glued the cut parts to the punched circle, and done they were!! These crackers have pictures in one direction only, so I am only able to get two favors from one cracker- since the bottom section has no cut edges to glue. Still, I had a dozen crackers, so I could get 24 favors from them. If I wanted to dig in the trash, that is!!
Oh, and if you are thinking Santa brought me a camera with bad color images, it's not true. I am still camera-less, sigh.
