Have a Care!

Our second Serendipity Challenge for April was to use one of the stamps from the Have a Care line.. I chose the Reuse it or Lose it in honor of Earth Day!

I made this hanger for our garbage can cupboard.  We have been trying to be more earth friendly, and recently our garbage company picks up the garbage as well as recycling.  I'm hoping that this little hanger will remind us to not throw out things that are recyclable!

*Reuse it or Lose it Serendipity Stamp (1064D)
*Basic Grey Origins Papers
*Used cardboard coaster (another way to recycle)
*Coordinating ribbon
*Hole punch
*Black ink
*Corner rounder

1. Cover coaster with adhesive and then cover with paper and trim around it.
2. Stamp image on paper and mat twice inking edges in black.  Ink edges of coaster as well.
3. Attach matted image to front of coaster, and punch holes to put ribbon through.

Now please visit the other design team members blogs.... chocked full of inspiration!
