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!
