Shopping Our Stash challenge #71!


*this is my second post for today. for the first, see HERE*

It's time again for a new challenge over at Shopping Our Stash!

This week's challenge is GREEN!! Use the colour, or the theme (i.e. RECYCLE)

I chose to recycle AND use green the colour (tricky huh?!)

Here's what I made:

I thought it would be fun to make the top of the jar look like those gorgeous old fashioned lids with the gingham  fabric thats all puckered because of the twine wrapped around it, only I used washi!

Actually if I'm being honest, just about everything on this jar is washi :) The label is a Hero Arts diecut and stamp, the stickers are October Afternoon (I THINK)...the doily is from my stash, as is the twine/string.
The jar is from my recycling bin (just joking, its one I used and cleaned out just yesterday

Here's an idea of what you could use it for :)

Isn't that a jar of happy?!

Or how about this:

this photo is for Leslie and Lisa :) They're my fellow Washi Warriors :)

Ok that's it for me! What about you?? Will you join us?! Make something green, or re-use!! Be sure to link up to the linky tool, no more than 13 other challenges and PLEASE let us know how you incorporated our challenge theme into your project.

Hop along over to the blog to see the rest of the DT's work!

"a jar of happy" - never a truer word spoken :)

Genius idea to use washi that way! It totally looks like gathered fabric!
Love that you used green both ways - clever you ;)
