This month's challenge on the Cricut Circle Blog is to Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle. We needed to use 3 reused or recycled items and 2 cricut cuts to complete the project. This challenge was great for me, because I have been wanting to decorate the gatorade container that my prisma color markers are in.
So, I started with a powdered gatorade container, and covered it with paper from my stash. Around the top I added some ribbon that used to be the straps on an old dress my daughter had, but she cut a hole in. (Aren't 3 year olds great?)
Then I made some scalloped circles on m Imagine that are filled in with patterns from the Yummy Cartridge. In the center of the flowers I put a lid from a jar of flower embellishments, and inside that I put another scalloped circle and the phrase which is cut from Cricut Everyday.
The flourishes are also cut from the Imagine Yummy Cartridge (I think it is one of my fav's right now!)
This was super simple and fast and it looks so much prettier than the ugly orange gatorade can! Now to empty another one for the rest of my markers!
