PaperBlooms happy earth day!!!!

happy happy earth day! this week over at PAPERBLOOMS we went green on ya! the challenge is to alter/ recycle something we'd otherwise throw away. i altered a diced tomato can ( you can also use a small veggie can for this project but i like the larger size). ( diretions can be found on splitcoaststampers, altered poptop can) inside this i added a couple packets of flower seeds and some plant nutrients.
i think it makes a nifty gift . i added a beautiful bloom made by leah . you can purchase these at her etsy shop you wont be disappointed they're perfect!
for this project i used my cricut and walk in my garden cartridge for the spade. i used george cartridge for the circle on the lid of the can. added a few buttons there and i added a bee, ladybug and a couple of dragonfly buttons elsewhere on the can. i also used MS punch for butterflies and ek success punch for top and bottom rim of the can. the pretty paper is dcwv garden party. thanks so much for looking and hope you recycled a little today :) hugs! shelly
