The Paper Players - #140

Recycling is the theme with the Paper Players this week. That is just up my alley! I am an avid recycler - I recycle everything possible and make sure the rest of my household complies.....

I love those little Reeses peanut butter cups -


 

 oh, they are sooooo yummmy! I "sacrificed" myself  to get those wrappers...... to make this card:





The idea with the vase I got from Kelly at Notable Nest - she made several brilliant cards with that - worthwhile to see. So I made a flower and two buds out of the wrappers, using thin wire and gluing a ready made flower into the center. The white background paper I ran through my Big Shot with the Papertrey Linen embossing plate - it needed some texture. The sentiment is Hero Arts Heart Felt Messages (Cl150).

This is beautifully done with the muffin's wrappers. Love the "vase" too!

These are so pretty--they remind me of a poppy! Clever use of those wrappings and how convenient that you can eat the candy too! Thank you for joining my recycle challenge this week at the Paper Players!

Soooo clever and what a wonderful card! If I lived in the US and had unlimited access to Reeces buttercups then I could easily make a hundred of these cards, they are so yummy.

Sieht sehr lecker aus. Eine tolle Idee die Muffinpapiere als Blume zu verwenden. Toll.

Oh this is so AWESOME!!! LOVE that you used the Reese's wrappers! What a fun take on the cupcake liner crafts. These are a nicer size to work with I think. And how cool that you have a vase for your blooms ... thanks so much for the shout-out! Totally made my day : )

Ja, Kelly hat immer so coole Sachen zu zeigen, ich schau auch sehr oft bei ihr rein. Einfach fabelhaft, wie du ihre Karte in deinen Stil umgesetzt hast, es bleibt nur noch die Grundidee. Echt super deine Kreation, ...die Muffinförmchen sind ein genialer Fund und sehen toll aus!!

Hab deine Post bekommen, aber dazu schreib ich dir ein privates Mail ;-) und bei den älteren Posts, da schreib ich dann etwas später noch meinen Senf dazu.

LG Rosi

Love recycling projects! I'm on the same boat with you. Nothing leaves my home without deep inspection if it could be recycled.
Such a sweet card!
