Live & Love Craft Sunday Inpiration- Recycling!

Good morning crafters.

Today was my turn to make a recycled project for the Live & Love Craft inspiration and challengeblog. Mine is the last of our recycling inspiration projects this week, so pop over to the LLC-blog to see what the rest of the DT have displayed during the week.

I used an old hair- color packaging to make a piggy bank. I thought it would be a fun gift for a friend who always says she wants to go to Paris, but it's never a priority... I hope this will give her an excuse to put some change aside, so who knows.. maby she will see Paris sooner than later:)

This is what I used as a base for my little piggy bank, 
some leftovers from me trying to cover up my grey hairs.. lol.

It looks much better now, don't you think:

I used Pion Papers, this one is the Blue Pansy 6x6 from the For Mother Collection. On the front I stamped two swirls with my Prima stamps, added a diecut with a coin-hole and painted it all with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Paint, Picket Fence. Then I distressed the corners with Vintage Photo distress inks. The blue roses are from Wild Orchid Flowers.

Here is what it looks like from the top:
 I glued the gorgeous Alençon lace around the box as a base. On the top I added cheese cloth, some corrugated cardboard, and a tag I made from Pion Desingn paper. The flowers are a Gardenia flower and Roses With Glass Pearls  from Kort og Godt. I also used some pearl string. The punch I've used is from Martha Stewart. The tag with the Eiffel Tower is form Sagene Vintage Design.The little white berries are also from Kort og Godt.

 Here is another one of the gorgeous Kort og Godt flowers, and a Vintage Pearl Pin from Maya Road.

Here's the other side of the box. The tag is Tim Holtz, the charms are from my stash.

I hope we inspired you to use what you have around the house to CREATE!

I would like to enter my box into the Stamp Artic September challenge: Tag. (I've used 2 tags on the top of the box and one on the side) 
Papirdokkene: #34 Ferden videre (den går til Paris...)
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!
