Upcycling Day 18

Last but not least is this banner made from 5 paint can lids. I colored them with green alcohol ink and then die cut a doily for each one along with 2 smaller scalloped circles and some holly. After I glued on the letters to spell "peace" I strung a green dotted ribbon through all of them.

Upcycling Day 17

This one was colored with alcohol ink but I did an extra step to get the extreme mottled effect behind the clock face. I used some of the cleaning solution on a brush and splattered it onto the ink already there. The clock die cut was the perfect size to sit on the rim. The ornaments were colored with alcohol ink and then hung like there were the clock weights.

Upcycling Day 17

This lid is really cute with the window die cut left open to reveal the tree and candle.  It was again colored with alcohol ink and pretty paper was added to the background.

Upcycling Day 16

This one couldn't be easier as far as the die cut is concerned. The lid is colored with red alcohol ink and the edge has a pretty ribbon glued to it. There is also red glitter paper in the background to make the snow globe stand out.

Upcycling Day 15

The lid on this ornament was colored with alcohol ink then some purple glitter paper was added to the background. The carolers are cut from silver shimmer paper and the snowflake border is cut from red glitter paper. The holiday sentiment is a simple sticker.

Upcycling Day 13

This lid is colored by rubbing it with clear embossing ink then heat embossing it with white glitter powder. It is also another bag topper and the only thing I had to add was the scarf which I hand cut.
