Dust Off Those Scraps --- Wee Memories Challenge & Hop


It's my 1st post as a Design Team member with Wee Memories!   It's also a Blog Hop, so hopefully you are arriving from  Stephanie's blog.   If you are only just joining us, please stop by Jenny's blog to start from the beginning.



The challenge this week is to use your scraps!  So easy for me, since I save almost every little scrap.  My 1st idea was to make magnets using these decorative floral marbles.  You just use a circle punch to make paper circles and use Crystal Lacquer to adhere the marble and the paper together.  I thought this Tic Tac Toe Tin would be more fun though.  My 6 and 8 year old love to play tic-tac-toe, so I made blue for my son, and pink for my daughter.  This tin used to hold flowers, now it has a fun purpose.  I layed out scraps on the inside of the tin and used the 3/8 robins egg ribbon to cover up the seems.


I added some more gorgeous ribbon around the outside of the tin using my ATG gun.  A cute little bow adds the finishing touch.   Thanks for stopping by my blog -   Your next stop along the hop is AnitaBe sure to add your project using scraps to the Wee Memories Blog for a chance to win a $15 Gift Certificate to Michelle's Scraps.  You have until Friday Feb. 11th to play along.
