Recycling: A Fruit Jar to a Button Jar

Splitcoast Ways to Use It Challenge: Recycling

Instead of making a card, I used a small fruit jar and turned it into a button jar.

These peaches are made and distributed by CVS Pharmacy. Yup, a pharmacy. I don't like canned fruit and it's the syrup I need. Why, you ask? I take a bunch of meds (mostly non-coated generics) everyday and when my ulcers are bothering me, they make me nauseous and sometimes even sick. I have found that the syrup coats them enough to make it easier on me.


Rubbernecker Stamps: Flourish Flower (530_15), sentiment (582_04)
Paper: SU whisper white, old olive, cherry cobbler
Ink: SU old olive & cherry cobbler
Tools: SU circle punch, Spellbinders Nestabilities scallop circle dies
Accessories: SU burgundy ribbon

Featured Stamper & Favorites

Today's featured stamper on Splitcoast is Korin (Sweet & Sassy Stamps). I absolutely love her gallery! After my card, I've linked some of her cards along with cards from some of the challenge players today.

My inspiration was based on Korin's Forget-Me-Nots card.

* Same colors & style EF
* Similar stamps & embellishing
* Turned the sketch and altered it a bit to accommodate the size
* Placed the flower embellishments differently
* No designer paper because I didn't have anything as pretty as Korin. I used a lacey border punch instead.

sentiment (565_12)
Paper: GP white, SU retired eggplant envy & orchid opulence
Ink: Memento black, rich razzleberry, Copic markers (C1, V12, V15, V17, G24, G21)
