Welcome! Thank you for joining us for the first annual Torendi Earth Day Blog Hop! This is actually our first official Torendi Blog hop as well! So exciting! We all know that paper crafting may not be the most eco-freindly craft but we can do our part to help make it more friendly to the environment. All the Torendi DT members have projects on their blogs today and the only "requirement" was that it be related to the Earth in some way. It could be a "recycled" project, a card to celebrate the day, or maybe even a layout about planting a garden.
For this project I decided to upcycle my face moisturizer container. The packaging stickers came off SO easily and it was also a breeze to clean!
Have you seen this technique before? I learned about it taking Claudine Hellmuth's class at CHA and wanted to share. I took a scrap piece of Bam Pop paper (notice scrap..that's being Earth friendly but not wasting those tiny pieces of paper) and placed it face down on to the sticky side of Claudine's Sticky Back Canvas. You then wet the paper and rub it off. The images is now on fabric!! How cool it that?!
Here is my finished project!
