Hello There Handsome

Good Morning everyone.  This is Cheri from DJ's Sundries and I have a recycled project for you today.  One of the "little things" that I enjoy doing is taking treats (usually little cheap things) and making them extra special. That's exactly what I did with today's project.  I used the Hot and Cold Bundle from 3 Girl Jam on the tag.  I love the colors in this bundle - especially for masculine projects.

So here is the final project.  Can you guess what the "Recycled" item is?  It's a mushroom container.  My grocery store recently changed their mushroom containers to use these little cardboard boxes.  How fun is that?  I'll be saving them every time I buy mushrooms from now on!

 I simply grabbed my paper scraps, some adhesive and my paper trimmer and started cutting and taping away.

Of course any special treat calls for a special tag, right?  That's where the Hot and Cold bundle came in.  I used several Tim Holtz embellishments, some alphabet beads, some twine, and some great papers to make it.  The finishing touch was the title strip from the My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline collection.

You can find more details and a video by visiting me at DJ's Sundries.  Until then, remember to take time to enjoy the little things in life.
