"Talented Tuesday" - Keep That Trash!!!

Hi, Denise here with our second "Talented Tuesday" Ever hear that saying "one person's trash is another person's treasure"? Don't throw your trash away. I would like to show you another way to use your trash, by using your negative images. I'm going to make a stained glass frame using my Big Shot. It works kinda like a Cuttle Bug but it accepts thicker items (even fabric) This is the die cut I'm using (you don't have to use this die cut or even the Big Shot, you can use your cricut or...)

And here's the Big Shot. It has instructions to make your sandwich.

I cut out 4 lattice die cuts out of foil card stock.

Which means I had all these wonderful negative images Now just start replacing the spots with the negative image's.

At Christmas time you can make an ornament by putting 2 together and don't forget, you have these negative images too!

Make a fancy frame or put vellum behind it to make a true window.The possibilities are endless. You can even make a BANGLE BRACELET! LOL!!!

That's it for today!! Join us tmw for some challenge inspiration and in the meantime, check out our current challenge and don't forget, if you're looking for a fun sketch, check the right sidebar!!
