Recyce / Reuse Blog Hop

Hello everyone and welcome to the Recycle/Reuse Blog Hop. This hop is all about pulling out that garbage or the old stuff that has been sitting around forever and creating a wonderful project.

If you arrived here from Maria's blog you are in the right place.  If you just happened to drop in, please start at the beginning with our awesome hostess Shannon so you don't miss any wonderful projects.

We have Scrapbook Stamp society sponsoring us today . They are giving away 3 free digi stamps. Our hostess Shannon will also be giving away a set of flowers of her choosing from her Etsy store that you can visit here.   Please be sure to stop by and leave a comment on each blog to be entered to win.

I decided to get a jump start on Halloween goodies for the kiddos.  I used toilet paper rolls to make these:

Frst I wrapped the toilet paper tubes in halloween paper, then I stapled them shut on one end filled them with "goodies" then stapled them shut at the other end the opposite way as the bottom to create the "sour cream" packet.  Then I used my cricut to cut the spiders out and attached them with pop dots.  I bent the legs of the spiders to give them more dimension.

Now you are off to Amanda's blog to see what she created with recycled items.

Here is the lineup in case you get lost along the way.
