MCT 3D Wednesday - REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Hello My Creative Time friends. Today our 3D projects are all about being environmentally friendly. We are Reducing, Reusing and Recycling to make our projects. For my project I used a soup can that would have gone in the garbage and all of the paper was from scraps that could have been thrown away.

I decided to make a little 'Summer Can of Fun.' This can will have little pieces of paper inside with different activities that my girls and I can do this summer. Once homework and chores are done, they can pick a fun activity from the can. I think it will be a huge hit!


I used two My Creative Time stamp sets to make this. The first set is Have Fun in the Sun and the second was All Around Everything Accessories. I just randomly stamped sentiment on the red background paper and on the piece of white cardstock I did flip-flops in various colors. The end touch was some orange twill ribbon by Celebrate It.

Don't forget to stop by Emma's Blog to see a lot of awesome projects. Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora

Items Used:

My Creative Time - Have Fun in the Sun
My Creative Time stamps - All Around Everything Accessories

  5. What a fun little activity can you've made! I'm sure your daughters will love it! Make sure you put some quiet activities in there that the girls can do on their own, since in another week, we'll have that new baby boy! :)
