Crafty JC - Recycle Project


Hola Crafters,
Being a top 3 at Crafty JC has been an exhilarating feeling! I did little dance as Khushboo told me about it over a call since I check the blog on and off! Thanks Crafty JC and the DT team for picking me! However knowing that I need to make a DT project on the theme “Recycle” wasn’t really a celebrating moment for me. Coz when you know your project shall be looked with judgment and alota criticality you gotta be good! And this is my first ever DT post so I have tried my best :) Am hoping its worthy of a DT project (Please be kind : ) )

So what I did I recycle? – A CD Case. (PS- I was on vacation whole of last week and bought many old CD’s my mom was about to throw off :P. ) I took out the CD insert and painstakingly took measurements to
cover all Panels. More details with pics.


This Projecy also goes for the Following Challenges -


Freshly Brewed - Something New

365 Cards - So not me






The Base Material used – Before the project

And here is the After of the project pics




This is the cover and I used my Echo Park – For the record papers. I used a Kaisercraft Mannequin (have been dying to use this one) as base added some frill with white net we receive with flower Bouquets. Used a sequin lace for the belt and pulled some individual sequins to bling the dress. The circle die cuts as well as the
sentiment are from a Glossy finish corporate flyer lying at home, its printed on the backside.



The Left side – The PP was stamped on the green side to look like a pretty background. This Panel is a “Reminder/To Do list” with sticky notes.
The Right Side – The same double sided paper again has been stamped and a magnetic snap is stuck behind. All Calendars have the magnetic snap behind the Month name and they just snap to the green panel inside :P



This is the backside with a pocket to keep the remaining calendars. All Calendars have been cut, stamped and heat embossed. The dates are handwritten. The best thing is this pocket provides a support for the case to stand even when its closed so you have the front as a Décor on your table. Once the calendar exhausts you can still use it and snap some magnetic saying to the inside. Talk about long term plans :)
Phew! That’s a long post considering I took 2 days to complete it :)
Hope you all inspired to recycle some old useless item lying around your house if you havn't done so yet! And please do follow all the rules while linking your post as we hate to miss out on your awesome entries! 
So hop over to the Crafty JC Challenge and show some love for Mother Earth!
Cheers
