a dedicated day of stash using, recycling, upcycling and general planet saving!
Second Saturday Savers with an amazing project from Michelle. I don't think you can get much more recycled that this as she used a roll, an old coin, some can opener tabs and a paper bag. Yet I love the finished project, don't you? So cute!!
I upcycled this roll. It measures approx. 3½" x 3½".
Before cutting it in half, trace and cut 2 circles in thick (recycled) cardboard.
You get the base, the lid and sides. Cut the circles to match the roll and glue with paper strips, inside and outside. To get and easy opening, add another stripe of paper on the back and inside too.
Cut and emboss cardstock.
Make 4 feet from can opener tab by folding them with pliers
Adhere the cardstock to the box.
Add 2 more tab on sides (to hold the chain later) with brads.
Adhere paper inside as well.
Hot glue the feet to the bottom of the box.
Die cut some gear from black shrink plastic and shrunk them.
The closure is made from an old coin (drill a small hole) and a small magnet.
Add some ribbon and more coins to decorate. It is big enough to hold a gift card.

See you tomorrow
