Lessology Challenge #43: Cardboard Central

Hello everyone,
Today I want to shear some Exciting News....
A new year with lots of new and creative opportunities

It is Challenge #43: Cardboard Central 
to use cardboard in a creative way,
and for me it is my first blogpost at LESSology and I'm
thrilled to part of such a fun and creative team where
Upcycling is in focus.
We have started this year with a Cardboard challenge
and I upcycled an empty Pringles Crisp box
into this Chocolate gift box

these Pringles tube boxes are brilliant for upcycling
and alterations

even the lid can be "stashed up"  to look
a bit more decorative
I use heated glue for decorating the lid as it is made of plastic

I have also used some  Birch bark peel off,  from our
firewood, as decoration as it has a natural curl to it.
( it is cold in Norway this time of the year and we use renewable
 heating resources like firewood and hydro electric power 
as we have plenty of waterfalls and large forests of pine, fir and spruce trees,
 just incase you are concerned  about deforesting)

A piece of corrugated cardboard was upcycled with a
paintover with some  white acrylic paint and some old pearls in a
a "save it for a rainyday" box was put into the mini glass bottle
to give it an extra bling

I use the metal wire cut offs, from the paper flowers, as embellishments.
Give it a swirl and " fill in the gaps"

Upcycling is a great way to help to preseve our planet in a creative way
and LESSology is the place to show your makings.
Come and join in on our fun and creative challenges.

Thank you for stopping by today and leaving a comment.
It is very encouraging to read them all :)
