OCC - Reuse your packaging Challenge

Hello everyone and welcome to 'My Little Stampin' Spot! This week's challenge over at 'Our Creative Corner' is to reuse your packaging. Our hostess Rebecca Ednie - Eclectic Endeavors is challenging us to reuse your packaging! Use those boxes, cans, tins, bags, plastic clamshells or embellishment bubbles you might usually throw out to create a fabulous project! I gotta confess, it took me awhile to figure out what I was going to reuse. I have been trying to clean house and reduce my crafting supplies and I'm not very good at keeping a lot of extra 'things' around (you know the things I'm talking about, those things you look at and think 'someday I could use this for.....', things) so to come up with something to reuse was going to be tough! Lucky for me I still kept some metal containers and I also came across some of those sewing kits that you can pick up at hotels. This sewing kit just so happened to have a hard case that slid open and close with the name of the company on the front of it (boring!). So I decided to make my own traveling sewing kit, not that I do a lot of sewing, LOL. But you never know when you might need to sew a button or two back on. Here is what I came up with by reusing my leftover packaging! Hop on over to 'Our Creative Corner' to see what the rest of the design came up with!




Everyone is welcome to play along, if you upload to SCS use the keyword OCCC. If you would like to be considered for the 'Top Talent' or 'Talented Trio' awards you must have your card/project submitted on the OCC blog post by Friday March 25th at 11:50 ET. Good Luck! I can't wait to see what you create this week!

What a cool project, Diane! And how cool that you had a stamp set that had images that were so perfect for what you wanted to do. Lovely bright colors too! It might have taken you awhile to come up with a project but you came up with a good one!

Have a great weekend.
