Recycled Packaging

At Out of a Hat Creations this week we are asking that you use some packaging that you received. This can be just part of your project or maybe you want to recycle a box, envelope or anything that you got with something inside it.

I made this Hanging for the guest bedroom--that should get folks up for sure .Mainly for my wonderful son-in-law who loves to stay in bed :)

I used an Amazon cardboard envelope, a cottage cheese carton and a box that had strawberries in it.

 I painted the sky and grass straight onto the card with some emulsion I found in the shed. Cut out some shapes from the carton and the box and Cuttlebugged em in a folder-then painted them with acrylic paint.. The red wavy edges are strips from the sides of the strawberry box.

The stamps are Chocolate Barouque-Punky Romance and a Lakeland Oriental stamp set -no longer available but I am pleased I have it cause I just love using the stamps in the set.

Hope you will join in with the Hatters for this challenge and visit Florence, Sandra and Janet to see what they have made for the challenge.
