Well, when I looked through my stash the other day I discovered that I have waaaay to many papers, decorations and stamps that just are laying around and that I totally forgot about. That's why I decided to make 50 creations before I will buy any new scrapbooking stuff. I got the idea from a Swedish Scrapbooking forum. I can only buy cardstock and glue and so on, you know stuff you use on a regular basis when you're crafting. I also decided that DT work doesn't count.
Here is my first project, a money-box. I also decided that I will put 10 Swedish crowns in a money-box for each creation I make. That way I will have 500 crowns for my next shopping spree. I altered an old mini Pringles can, perfect to use as a money-box. I also got the idea for the money-box on the same forum.
I'd like to enter the following challenges:
- Allsorts Challenge Blog, week 88: Saving Nature (Recycled Pringles can and I used flowers from another project)
- Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays: A Punchy Challenge
- Stamptacular Sunday Challenge, challenge # 96: Whateva
Here is the money-box. I thought the image from Whiff of Joy was just perfect and it's also a miniature stamp so the size was great for the little can.
