Fantabulous Cricut "Save the Earth" Crawl

Welcome to the 7th Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!

In honor of our Home Planet, Mother Earth, we're having a "Save the Earth" Crawl...each Design Team member will be featuring an original Upcycled-Themed Project that includes at least one Reuseable/Recycled Item along with at least ONE Cricut Cut.


If you've come from visiting Amy "The Redheaded Crafter", you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE


Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Save the Earth" project at FCCB!

 
 
For my project...first off you have to laugh...
 
I took a picture (or at least I thought) of the before box I used. LOL. Turns out I didn't! Anyway...if you could imagine a box that lifesavers came in to begin with... then I upcycled into a card gift set box...
 


 
The cut is from Lovely Floral cart at 4 1/4".

Now it's your turn! Let's see your Upcycled-Themed projects! Make sure to include a Cricut Cut somewhere on your project!

 
Next stop...Cindy "Cindy's Scraptastic Design". Go see what she has in store for you today... And when you're done, make sure to link up your project to FCCB's Fantabulous Cricut Crawl post to be entered into the contest!

 
Happy Crawling!
 
Be blessed, Beckie

Thanks, Janis aka ~JD~

Beckie great idea. Now I wish I hadn't thrown these out at Christmas. We always put these lifesaver boxes in girls stockings even though there in their 20's.

I love those lifesaver boxes, but have never done anything with them. Thanks for sharing your project. Love it.

This is such a cool idea...I really like the lettering on the top of the box, it reminds me of the sugar-coated gummie candies that the kids eats. Love it. Kathie

Sarah said...

What a great idea! And you did it beautifully!

Jessica said...

I'm finally getting to hop, but so glad I came by! I love that cut from Lovely Floral and always forget about it. Can you tell me, though, how that Happy Birthday embossing folder was used? Is it on acetate?

Thanks -- your DT pal,
Jessica
