Little Red Wagon - Challenge 1

I am so excited to be participating in the very first challenge on our new blog, Little Red Wagon! Regan has challenged us to use packaging to create a card, layout or altered item.

I was a little intimidated by this challenge until I remembered I had some Prima flowers mounted on some kraft cardboard with swirls and leaves cut out.





I sorted through my scraps and found some paper and die cuts to match. I also found a coordinating Prima flower and felt heart. I inked all the edges of the papers and card in Brushed Corduroy Distress ink then layered on the paper and die cut tag. I popped up the sentiment on foam dots then added the heart and flower. I finished it off with three dots of Cinnamon Stickles on the flowers at the edge of the tag.

We'd love for you to play along, so visit Little Red Wagon and link up your creation!

Now we need another shelf for recyled scrapping stuff.......oh, no...renovation time!!
Great idea though...some of the packagaing, not just from scrapping...I am thinking the little designer bags from some boutiques are really nice.
