Christmas Lantern

This is the lantern from svgcuts.com Crisp Days of Fall kit and Comet's Candy Land collection.  I welded the tree from Comet's Candy Land.  I think the reindeer would look good too.  Check out their new files they are great!

Cookie Box



This cookie box was made from another svgattic.com kit called Cookies for Santa.  It is a wonderful file and I can't wait to make more of the boxes and the other projects.  Can't wait to fill the boxes.  My husband better start baking :-)

Advent Calendars


Jessica at svgattic.com created this advent calendar svg kit and it is awesome.  It is somewhat time consuming, but well worth making.  I think they turned out really nice!

My Daughter's Birthday

I made these for my daughter's birthday. She has a Keurig coffee pot, so I made a wrapper for 4 pumpkin spice k-cups using the
 Oh-k dokey svg from Mytimemadeeasy.com , the pumpkins from the Fall Celebration kit at svgattic.com, the tag from punkinpatchstamps.com the Heirloom Tradition set and Trendy Twine.
 The card is from svgcuts.com.  The kit is Crisp days of Fall and it has some wonderful svgs.  I got her a Pandora charm
made a small box using the Puffyboxs kit from svgattic.com.  The bow is the Abra Bow Dabra svg from mytimemadeeasy.com.






This was one of my favorite projects!  She loves scrapbooking and card making too, so I knew how much she would appreciate it.

Welcome to the 9/17 upcycle blog hop!

Hi, Welcome to the 9/17 Upcycle Blog Hop!  If you got to my blog from Joe http://www.createncraft.com/ you are in the right place.  If you want to start from the beginning you should go to our hostesses blog at http://scrappyscavenger.wordpress.com/ .

We have been asked to create something that you can recycle.  I decided to use an empty crystal light container.  My theme is Halloween.  You can use this container as a gift filled with candy or you could use it for your child to save money to by their own pumpkin to carve for the holiday!

This is my finished product! But first I would like to tell you that I used an svg file from Svgattic.com.  Jessica has many file that I think you would like.  I do!

Supplies used  were: empty crystal light container, sure cuts a lot software, cricut expression, paper trimmer, scots glue, ribbon, chalks, cardstock solid autum collection from America Crafts, printed cardstock from Cosmo Cricut, terrifically Tacky tap and Xryon sticker machines
I removed the label and cut my printed cardstock 6 1/8 inches by 9 inches wide. Which gives enough room for the lid to fit back on.  I placed the tacky tape on both sides of the width ends of the cardstock, attached one side of the cardstock to the middle of the container and wrapped it around and taped.  That will be the back of the container.  I then cut all my peices, chalked all my pieces, put them together and ran them through the xyron.  










I resized the Pumpkin border svg's by grouping all pieces together.  Make sure you have the keep proportions box checked and I resized to 8.853 by 1.293.  Now you can ungroup to cut in different colors.

Pumpkin 4 and face 1 svg's. I did the same as above, grouped all the pieces together and I resized to 3.200 by 1.723.  Ungroup and cut in different colors.

Caption svg's done the same way as above, grouped all the pieces together and resized to 3.030 by 1.676.  Ungroup and cut.

Crow svg's done the same way as above, grouped all the pieces together and  resized to 1.880 by 0,938.  Ungroup and cut. Now you are ready to decorate your container.

Thank you for visiting my blog!!  Please become a follower and leave me a comment.  Jessica at Svgattic.com has been so kind to sponsor a $10.00 gift card for my blog candy, which I will be giving away to one lucky commenter. I will be posting the winner on my blog Tuesday, September 20th.

Have fun!

Your next stop is Anita blog anitaandbugs.blogspot.com.
