FCCB "Save The Earth" Crawl

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog "Save the Earth" Crawl. If you came here from  Jessica: Cricut After Dark then you are on the right track. If not you can start the crawl from FCCB and join in the fun after visiting all the talented ladies. 

We are challenged to make a project using a recycled item. For my project I recycled an ice cream container to become a bucket for my scrapbook gear. I first covered it in paper, cut a few circles for the top and inside of the cover, cut butterflies from Wall Decor and More Cartridge and added some ribbon from my stash. 

I used Martha Stewart Iridescent Glitter on the butterflies.

So how about a small giveaway for this hop. A set of rubber sentiment stamps, perfect for your   card making.

To be entered for a chance to win, leave me a comment on this post,  it would also be nice if you would become one of my followers. I will pick a winner using and announce the winner in my next FCCB post.
