So, if you've been scrapping for some time now, you know that there are MANY products that come in a protective plastic wrapping. Many of my favorite Prima flowers come packaged this way. I have been saving my packaging up, not wanting to throw them in the trash bin. After holding onto them for some time, today I finally decided it was time to get some use out of them!
I pulled out some packaging, and some alcohol inks. I didn't worry about the labels on them, as I have found them to be difficult to remove. I just left them on, and flipped the packaging over to the opposite side. I colored them with alcohol inks...
At this point, you can do what you like with them. I used one as an extra layer on this layout:
I also made some flowers, by tracing circles onto the plastic sheets and then cutting them out. I matted the smaller, inner layers on white cardstock so they would show up and adhered them with Zip Dry. Then, simply placing a brad in the centers finished off the look.
Here's the page I used the flowers on, I just love this one!
I hope this inspires you to try and use EVERYTHING you possibly can when you create. I think every little bit you keep out of the trash is a GOOD thing!
