upcycled hairspray top

happy wednesday :)
i made this for this weeks challenge over at little red wagon which is to upcycle. craft with something youd usually throw away.
also at DLARTS whos having an anything goes linky party all month
i upcycled a hairspray top using some paper,ribbon,buttons,felt, batting and thats dont even have to cover this i did because part of the challenge is using paper.
i wish i could say my brain came up with this one but i happended to stumble upon this idea from judy beeksma. her easy and visual tutorial can be found on her blog ~~~> here <~~~

so heres my quick and very very useful project.
this is what i started with. its from the large sized can of suave hairspray.

this is what it looks like now :)
i swear the pins stick in here perfectly and the cushion part does not come out of the lid.

thanks so much for checking this out hope you give the project a try and if you do please give judy some blog love i sure shed appreciate it :) happy crafting!xxxshelly
