Go green!

March is in full swing now and everyone are talking about green colors and being green, recycling and up-cycling. And this is the theme of the March challenge at Scrap It Girl: Go Green and Recycle!

Accidentally, few weeks ago, I looked at the little plastic tag from the plastic bag with a loaf of bread and thought that I like it. Instead of throwing it away I put it on my craft desk. Few weeks later I had a nice pile of tags in different colors and sizes. "I could make a banner from those little plastic creatures", I told to myself and I did.

I usually start my layout with the background cardstock or patterned paper, but this time I only had an idea for a banner, 2 big bingo cards and "wonder" flashcard. After some digging in my stash I found what was left form the Cosmo Cricket "Upcycle" kit (coincidence?) and decided that it will work.

Supplies: patterned paper, sticker (Cosmo Cricket), bingo cards (K&Co), green letter stickers (American Crafts), red letter stickers (Cosmo Cricket), pin (Jillibean Soup), tag (October Afternoon), star punches (Fiskars), flashcard, buttons, twine
I cut out three flowers from another piece of the same patterned paper and layered them with buttons under the picture. I played a while with the banner and finally decided to leave the tags as they are, just added three layered stars.
