Recycle Queen is at it again...

giving sheets of magazine advertisements
and a plastic jar, that once contained scrapbook flower embellishments
NEW LIFE by combining them with the HOO Loves You Stamp by Eileen Gutierrez that debuted the week of CHA from The Pixie Cottage.

Wow, we're already on Challenge #33 at The Pixie Cottage

This week our theme is "Back To School" you may use our theme alone or combine it with this week's sketch or use the sketch with a completely different theme...so many options! We just ask that you link your NEW creation back to Challenge #33 at The Pixie Cottage
for your chance to win Stamps from The Pixie Cottage!

Here's the sketch:

Good Luck and Happy Creating!

The following is my 'pictorial how to' on recycling

a Justice ad and a flower container into a functional Back to School Desk Essential...

cut ad into segments measuring the height of container...

Mod Podge is great for sticking the 2 together

roll the paper around a thin paint brush or pencil...

glue end in place to complete the roll...


glue on...

Adorn with your favorite stamp.
I chose HOO Loves You Stamp by Eileen Gutierrez
colored it with Copics

got green wire and alphabet beads involved...

Voila! What a great teacher's gift to welcome him/her, for Christmas, or at the end of the year. So easy...even the kiddos could make them (after their finished with their homework of course!)
