DT project for OSAAT ' Reuse or recycle' 4th March

These weeks are just flying by, it is March already!   We have a new challenge for you over at OSAAT this week, and that is
'Reuse or recycle'

Now I like these challenges because it means I can decorate things I have been keeping my stash in for ages, without seeming to waste my time when I should be doing something else, or some other DT project!  So here is what I have been keeping my 3D paints in for like over a year now!
And here is waht it looks like now that I have decorated it!!!!

I love how it turned out, I hope you do too :o)

I have used a papermania paper pack for the backing on all the sides, and lid and a fiskars punch for the boarder

Top view

Front  view

Side view

I have used the Funky floral V image from floppy latte designs in the Stitchy bear store .  I have printed it out 4 times and decoupaged the image and just used a sakura stardust black pen in the centre pieces of the design.  I have then used a marainne creatable small swirl die and a Joy crafts large leaf swirl for the leaves

The gorgeous butterfly is  another joy craft die cut that i have cut in both black and white to give it a show effect and added gems to the body, The writing has been created on my computer and then cut out with another marianne creatable die cut then inked around the edge.

The front has been created in the same way as the top although the image was printed smaller.

I will be entering this project into the following challenges

Thanks for stopping by
