Sugar Creek Hollow Saturday Challenge

Welcome to another Sugar Creek Hollow challenge!  This week we challenge you to use your "trash' and create a vintage treasure.  You can include items from your paper scraps but your project must start with something you are re-purposing.  Please include a photo of that item in your post so we can say "You went from that to that - wow!"  You never know what you may have laying around that can be transformed into a work of art.  My treasure is a box I created for Christmas goodies.  I can use this for a fancy gift box or it makes a great container for cookies or candy.  I also made a matching gift tag.

My "trash" is this oatmeal container that I conveniently emptied this week.  I got carried away trimming this down and you can even see my beginning cuts.  I trimmed the container to 3" above the base and covered it with design paper.

My reindeer, fancy label and tag were all created with my Cricut.  I embossed the reindeer and sponged with distress ink.  I think they look very vintage!

We will choose one random winner who will receive a digi of our choice and a winner's badge to display. The Design Team will select one project as Card of the Week and the creator of that project will receive a badge to display and will be in the running for a Guest Designer spot.

By entering this challenge you not only have a chance to win our regular prizes, but your name will go into the draw for the Christmas Blog Candy every time you enter so let's see your wonderful creations!

Thanks for visiting, I love reading your comments and I appreciate all your support!
