(I wouldn't want you to miss a THING, so start at the beginning!!)

Now, onto My Creation:


(Please note: Normally I do NOT know the names of all the papers or the other materials I use b/c they are either something I had from years ago, or it's something that has been donated to me. 
Craft Green to Save Green my friends! Use what you already have!)

I love to recycle & re-purpose things!
I started this pencil can project with an Empty Steel Cut Oats Can.
Covered it in Paper (which I got from a friend).
The decorative string at the top & bottom are two toned sticky string that I won as blog candy.
The Digi Stamp is from Jen's Digi Stamps
(I absolutely Love using Her Stamps!! 
Make sure you check them out!!)

  40. Great use of items for your pencil can. You didn't let us know where you got the pencils, scissor, and ruler from. Two thumbs up for green awareness and recycling.
