Upcycling: Guest Designing for Craft Hoarders Anonymous in August!

This month I am proud to be guest designing for Craft Hoarder's Anonymous Challenge Blog!!

Challenge #13 is Let's Cycle...Up-Cycle That Is!  Being frugal and going green is what it's all about. Show us how you can up-cycle something using "junk" from your hoard. Most craft hoarders also hoard boxes, tins, packaging, and bits of this and that. Our mantra is, "I can MAKE something with that!" Now is your chance! Up-cycle!

My project is an upcycled Prima Resin Box. It started its life very usefully holding several of the resins I used on my project!

Everything I used on this project to upcycle it came from the gorgeous C'est Magnfique August Kit. First I painted it with the Dina Wakely Heavy Acrylic Paint included in the Mixed Media kit, I then loaded it up with flowers from the Main Kit and Flower Add On, as well as die cuts and chipboard from the Embellishment Add On. As a finishing touch there is lace all around the edges and those cute little fairy resins hopping in around the project! I added the sentiment "It's not about the happy ending, it's about the story" to the box. I really love how it turned out and my cousin already claimed it for her room!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you join the challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous.

I love those boxes that the resins come in and you've certainly done a great job upcycling it. Love that robin's egg blue and it matches the rest of your embellishments so well. beautiful project!
