Re-Cycled Swiffer Dusters Box


Happy Sunday Sweet Friends

I hope your weekend has been fabulous.  Mine has definitely been interesting - and I actually felt like making a new project today.  As you can tell from the photos below I had fun re-cycling a Swifter Duster's Box.  It all started when I went through a few craft boxes yesterday from our recent move.  I was using this Swifter Duster box as a trash can.  As you can see - I have already taken the box apart.  I was having so much fun using this box as a trash can I decided to make it a pretty one and keep it.  


After taking the box apart I decided to use the box with the outside turned inward.   I cut all the pieces to cover the box and used super tacky tape for added strength.  I put the box back together again and used Washi Tape as edging for the top and bottom.  I added the butterfly since it went so well with the quote on the cardstock.  


It may sound weird but I absolutely love this small trash can and it actually fits perfectly on my craft table.  I just hope it lasts a long time.  HeeHee!!

I just had to share this quick project with you and maybe, just maybe it might inspire you to create something out of cardboard too.  

Thanks so much for stopping by - it always makes my day and your comments mean the world to me.

With smiles always

Cinderella goes Camo

Hello my dear sweet friends -

I hope this finds you doing well.  It's been a while since I have been able to post and yet I have been able to get quite a few loose ends tied up.  I ended up making a quick trip to California to get the rest of personal stuff out of storage.  I am no longer scattered across three states and I can't even begin to express how wonderful that feels.  It will take me some time to get all my craft stuff set up and organized again but it looks like I will be able to really get on the ground running again.  It was a group effort and my sisters and brother in law were amazing and so incredibly helpful.  

A few days before the trip I received a phone call (out of the blue) from a dear friend I worked with at the Police Department in California 20 years ago.  It was great hearing from him and we have been having fun getting caught up on things. My my, so many new and exciting changes.  I am still working on getting my health back on track and doctors say I a…

Happy Tuesday Sweet Friends
I hope you are having a fabulous day!!  And I am really hopeful it's not overly hot where you are.  It's suppose to be 114 degrees here today and I am NOT looking forward to that.   What I am looking forward to is sharing my newest creation using this absolutely amazing image by Sherri Baldy.  She was so much fun to color and the background was really fun to create as well.  I just love her - she looks like she's just chillin' and enjoying her surroundings.  It's kind of magical and I would love to be there with her.  

I used Copics to color her and the colors I used are:
B00, 02, 04, 05, 12, 14 (Background and her Eyes) E000, 00 11, 31, 33, 35   (Skin and Sand). RV02, 04, 21, 23 (Water Background) V01, 05, 06, 09  (Mermaid tail, top, flowers, background and seaweed) YG21, 23, 25   (Water Background) YR21, 23, 25 (Hair)
I hope she brings you a smile.  Here's the link to her in Sherri's Etsy Shop: Sherri Baldy on Etsy - Image 661 Here's the lin…
