Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!

I just started watching the show “The Lazy Environmentalist” and it got me to thinking…”Can I be even greener in my crafting?” Here is a card I made with some thick plastic packaging:

Stamps: Stampin Up!, Paper: K&Co., Die Cuts: Cricut
Stamps: Stampin Up!, Paper: K&Co., Die Cuts: Cricut

I used the cute Sock Monkey set from Stampin Up, stamped it with SU! basic black on Georgia Pacific Cardstock and water-colored him, with M Graham co. paints. The paper is by K&co (there are the cutest sock monkey patterns in there!) and I cut all the shapes out with my Cricut and accent Essentials cartridge. Now that’s some Chic Trash! Happy Crafting!

  1. question….how do you make the edges not razor sharp???? Otherwise, it’s a fab idea but whenever I have had to cut plastic packaging, it ends up super sharp.

    1. I used a paper trimmer (x-acto guilotene style or a sizzix machine) to cut the plastic and it wasn’t sharp, maybe it curls the edge a bit or something, haven’t tried it with scissors though.
