Gingersnap Creations Spicy Supply Challenge

This week at Gingersnap Creations it's the spicy supply challenge sponsored by Altered Pages and the theme is to use packaging. I don't know about you, but I receive a lot of things in the mail, so this is a great challenge that can make you feel good because you're also recycling! My project is a set of ATC's with bases of corrugated cardboard from a shipping box, and I made background paper by stamping with paint using bubble wrap and corrugated cardboard to create fun graphic patterns. I simply added bits of my background paper to each ATC and then used an alphabet tags collage sheet from Altered Pages to give each a letter and then a stamped word (Close to my Heart) completed the embellishments.


Here are my packaging supplies I used to create my background paper:


And here's how my background paper looked once stamped:

Show us how you can use packaging in your projects and add a link to the blog post HERE - the challenge will run until July 10th - hope you'll play along!

I love how you have used the packaging to create your papers and then used them for your ATCs. The colours are very striking and great one word sentiments.
Hope you're enjoying the week.

I liked that you showed the raw materials and then the next stage in their process of being transformed from packaging into art.
Wonderful.
