Show Us Anything but a Card!

Yep that's right - the new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu wants to see Anything But A Card!

Well I've been playing with a bit of up cycling! Over Christmas we had more sweeties than I care to admit and they came in all sort of tubes and containers. I used some of the jars in my craftroom to keep different bits and bobs in and then I had a tube......

I really needed a container for my long paintbrushes, all the shorter ones are in a short container and the long ones do not fit so I decided to upcycle one of the sweetie tubes!

I used a base pant then glittered the whole body with some champagne glitter, Added some lace to the top and a die cut fence in some pearlised white card, the face was a gift from our own lovely Elaine and I painted it with mother of pearl acrylic paint. I edged in some pearls and added a fan cut from pearlised card.

I hope you will come over to Eclectic Ellapu this week and show us you projects - what have you been making, we're dying to see!

See you soon!


  1. This is a gorgeous make babes and so pleased you found a use for the face. Very imaginative and a fat free use for pringle tin lol.
