Workshop Wednesday #17- Playing with Recyclables- Cardboard Boxes

Happy Earth Day!!!

Today, we are going to play with what I think is one of the most recycled materials out there…. cardboard boxes!

Seriously though… how many cardboard boxes do you recycle every week? Crackers, cereal, pop boxes and goodness only knows what else comes in these cardboard boxes and they just go out for recycling again, at least I hope so!! But what if we would reuse them into something crafty? Today we are going to!! Take a look:

One of my favorite ideas!! I am going to use it over and over and over again!! Especially for mixed media canvas’!!! Remember, it doesn’t have to be 3D rolled flowers you use them for, you can use them to cut flourishes, buttons, hearts, anything you want to have a little more dimension than just normal cardstock! And with a little gesso you can make them any color at all that you want to!! I’m loving it!!

Hope you have a great day celebrating Mother Earth!! See you Wednesday!!

Hey there!! You want to know alittle about me?hmmm... I'm a mom of 2 beautiful little girls. My wonderful husband and I have been together for 10 years this spring and married for 7. We have a perfect little acreage in Central Alberta, Canada. I spend my summer outside growing the food to feed the tiny humans and the winter inside making gifts for our family and friends. I have been creating since I was a young teenager but only really got to be serious since my daughters were born. I work part time evenings so I can be home raising our daughters in the day time and creating beautiful things and make alittle spending money in the evenings to pay for the supplies to create the beautiful things! LOL Hubby is crazy supportive of the new roles I have developed in the online crafting world and is always so proud of the things I create! I am so blessed to have him and little girls that squeal "Mommy its prefect!!" supporting me on my creative journey! Come along with us!! We can all keep learning new things together!!
