Hello everyone! It's time for another "3-D Wednesday" with My Creative Time. The goal is to challenge yourself by making a 3-D project...anything but a card or layout. And today, we also have a theme "REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE!" Make a 3-D project using ANY recycled item in your home.
For my "REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE" item, I chose a tuna can. Here is the "before" picture:
And here is my "after" picture:
Isn't it the cutest? I have to admit right away, that I totally "borrowed" the eyeglasses on the worm idea from my super talented My Creative Time ~ Design Teammate : Cindy. You can see her original piece here. I have always loved this little worm. He always looks like a little bookworm to me. So when I saw Cindy put these little glasses on him, I just knew that I was going to have to "scraplift" that idea. Makes him look even more studious!!! Love it! ;)
This super cute little bookworm is cut from one of my all time favorites - the Create A Critter ~ Cricut Cartridge. And the apple is cut from the Makin' the Grade ~ Cricut Cartridge.
The black base for the worm is Recollections cardstock. The top layer of green patterned paper for the worm is from the Recollections ~ Sugar Plums collection. The bottom layer of green patterned paper for the worm is from the Die Cuts With A View ~ The Guy Stack. The super cute face is from the Peachy Keen Stamps ~ Wide Eyed Kids Face Assortment. I used a white ~ Sakura Gelly Roll Pen for the eyes. I also added a little Glossy Accents to the eyes as well. I colored in the mouth with red and grey ~ Zig Writer Pens. The super duper cute eyeglasses are cut with a die in the My Creative Time ~ What's Growing On? stamp set. I put a couple of little blue gems from my stash in the corners. I also used some pop dots behind the worm for a little dimension.
The brown paper for the apple stem is from Recollections. The green paper for the leaf is the same as the bottom layer of the worm and it's from the Die Cuts With A View ~ The Guy Stack. The cute little embellishment is cut with the My Creative Time ~ Scallop & Stitched Circle Dies. The kraft cardstock and the yellowish-orange cardstock are both from Recollections. The fun sentiment is from the My Creative Time ~ My Teacher Rocks stamp set. I used a black ~ Zig Writer Pen to fill in Emma's signature stitching lines around the circle. I added a pop dot behind the whole thing for a little dimension. And the bow is made with Liz's Paper Loft Boutique ~ Hemp Twine.
The paper around the tuna can is actually a strip of alphabet letters from a 12x12 piece of border paper in the Die Cuts With A View ~ The Grade School Stack. Isn't it perfect??? Inside the tuna can is a piece of green floral foam and I covered that with this fun crinkled paper filler.
So what do you think? I just love it!!! And the funny part . . . I don't even have a teacher to give it too. However, teachers have always been my most favorite people ever!! So if you have some in your lives, give them a little LOVE. They so definitely deserve it!!!
Well my creative friends, that's it for me today. Make sure you head on over to My Creative Time to see what the rest of the Design Team has created. I will see you all again tomorrow. Have a great day! :)
