Recycled Gift Cans! Blog Hop!


On my blog in honor of my Dad's Birthday today and my daughter Anika's 12th Birthday on Sept. 30th, I will be giving away The Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge to one lucky winner.

All you have to do is Comment what you would make with this amazing cartridge and for who! I can't wait to see all of your comments!  :-)

Hi, It's Kendra here with a super cute and environmentally friendly alternative to throwing away your soup, vegetable and other metal cans.  
What is cuter than creating one of a kind gift wrapping for your whole family!

Just about everyone in the United States has opened a can some time in their life.  If you have the right kind of can opener you can recycle your cans into adorable gift containers.  You need a Pampered Chef can open that breaks the seal of the can instead of cutting it and leaving sharp edges.

That Supplies you need are: An large can that has been opened with a Pampered Chef Can Opener and has been washed and dried.  Cricut Expression 2 Anniversary Edition, The Give A Hoot Cricut Cartridge, Birthday Bash Cricut CartridgeSentimentals Cricut Cartridge, Creative Memories Stork's Delivery, Sports Mania Cricut Cartridge, Best images of 2006 Cricut CartridgeCricut Gypsy, Paper Trimmer, Red Liner Tape, Black Pen, White Signo Gel Pen, Foam Dots, Eucalyptus Stickles, and Various Color of  Swiss Dot, Metallic and Cartstock by Bazzill Basics!
A special Thanks to Bazzill for providing me with such amazing Cardstock to work with!

Keep the Blog Hop Going!  There are tons of more giveaways coming your way!

  8. I have had this cart on my wish list for a while. I could really put it to good use to make cards (and packaging) for all of my grandchildren. They love getting homemade cards!
