Compendium of Curiosities 2, Challenge 8!

Technique 8: Repurposed Packaging
Tim Holtz: A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2, page 62
 
 
 
Hello June, and hello awesome blog friends! This week’s CC2C is all about up-cycling: Transforming what might be considered trash into something cool and crafty. Once you’ve played with Tim’s clever techniques for turning old plastic packaging into rad craft embellishments, you’ll start hoarding the stuff just to have it on hand for your next project! (Well, that’s what I do, anyway…)
 
 
Tim show two methods of Repurposed Packaging in the Compendium. Your project can include either, or both!
To participate in CC2C #8, create your own work of art using the Repurposed Packaging technique on page 62 and link it to this blog using the InLinkz button at the bottom of this post. You’re a rockstar as long as you honor these simple rules:
Follow the technique as it’s written in A Compendium of Curiosities, Vol. 2 (adding your own special flair, of course!), and clearly state that the technique comes from Tim’s book.  
Include a link to this post in your blog post (or photo description if you’re linking from an online photo-sharing site).   
Out of respect to Tim, please don’t post the technique instructions on your blog! Any entries that don’t follow this rule will be unlinked.   
 This challenge closes on Thursday, June 7 at 8 pm MTD.  
Please see the CC2C FAQ here for more information.

If you participated in last week’s CC2C #7, you’re awesome, and you’ll want to keep on eye on the eclectic Paperie blog, as Daisy is going to announce the winner of the challenge very soon. Thanks so much, Daisy!

Have a fantastic beginning to the sweet month of June, everyone!

Hugs,
Linda

P.S. If you don’t have them on hand, you’ll want to get an Idea-ology Pocket Watch, a bottle of Picket Fence Distress Stain, some of Tim’s Core’dinations paper, Kraft Glassine and Ranger Ink Refresher to add to your stash for upcoming challenges (not necessarily in that order). Also, get yourself a new Configurations box– any size you like. I’ll try to let you guys know in plenty of time when a challenge is coming up that requires a specific product beyond the standard Tim Holtz stash items.
