Now, Onto My Project:
I made two projects, but only did a tutorial for the first one. The second project (shown at the end) took on a life of its own :)
I went to the thrift store and rescued this nasty looking cookie sheet. I also rescued a lamp shade that I used in my second project. I spent $2!
I grabbed some spray primer that I had left over from another project and primed both sides of the cookies sheet.
Next, I spray painted the cookie sheet black to match my scrap nook.
Using my Gypsy and purple vinyl, I cut out "Imagine" from Wall Decor and More sized at 2.29 inches. I cut out the swirl from Home Accent sized at 6.70 inches.
I use settings 3-3-3 on my Expression (or Vinyl on my E2) and then weed out the extra pieces. I use clear contact paper as my transfer tape. I de-stick my clear contact paper on my jeans. I forgot this step once and really regretted it!
I took some denim from some of my old jeans after I lost weight and glued a strip onto a cardstock circle making a flower. I put a purple gem in the center and glued it to the cookie sheet.
I mounted my magnet board to my cupboard door (that hides my circuit board) above my desk.
I removed the lamp shade from the frame and used the bottom ring as a frame for my wreath. I cut strips of denim and tied them onto the ring along with white tulle. I tied a tulle bow and clipped on three gerber daisies from Michaels. I hung this on my basement door near my craft nook.
I used the top of the lamp shade for another Recycled project ~ a clip it. You can see the project and how I made it HERE.
Thank you so much for joining me today to celebrate Earth Day. Now, Please Hippity Hop on over to the talented ANN-MARIE to see what she has created for your viewing Pleasure!
