Shopping Our Stash #148 - Happy Earth Day!!


Happy Earth Day to you and Happy Birthday to my momma!!!

This week's Shopping Our Stash challenge is an ode to Earth Day - we want you to upcycle or recycle something...take something old, work your magic and turn it into something new!
  
Visit the SHOPPING OUR STASH blog for all the details on this challenge and to show my teammies some earthy crafty love!!!

For this challenge I started with this mini egg tube - which was obviously empty because those little pieces of chocolate heaven are my favourite!!!!


And I turned it into this skull and bat piggy bank.



Pretty cool huh??? Let's see what you can recycle or upcycle for this challenge!

Everything on this project came from my stash:
  • Bat design paper (can you even see it under the washi tape??)
  • Halloween washi tape (SU)
  • Skull die
  • Bat punch (SU)
  • Glittery skull and crossbones (Michaels)
  • Basic Black cardstock (SU)
