We used: A McDonalds Happy Meal box, a marshmallow packet, shells, a beer bottle top, foam, bubble wrap, patty pans, maps, old book pages, a coke can, torn cardboard, sand and the Dymo labeller!
First we had to create a card from the Happy Meal Box - it gives a slightly off rectangle shape. We then glued on some of the map and some torn pages of the book. Amber then tore up some cardboard exposing the corrugated part underneath while I cut up and ruffled the marshmallow wrapper. They were then glued down to the card. We cut the foam into strips and found that some of it had a stickiness to it from it's packaging. So we glued the ends of the strips together and realized that it looked like rain drops or petals. We went with petals and used the bottle top as a center. Amber then rolled the yellow patty pan and popped it in the middle. We later hot glue gunned it in place and added stickles. As for the coke can. I did the cutting as I was terrified Amber would get sliced up. We gave the can a good clean then used some tin snips and cut a nice long strip (removing the top and bottom of the can). Then Amber chose some dies and she ran the can through the Cuttlebug. The can went through reasonably well, it sort of embossed the middle of the sand dollar and shell! So we added them and some sand and the theme of our card became the beach!
So, what have you made that's been recycled? Leave me a message so that I can come and see and be inspired!
