Friend Whimsy Pocket

Greetings to all!  Shabby Chic Sunday for me!  I am featuring an upcycled pocket today.  I love to recycle items. 

At Sentimental Sundays we  have an anything but a card challenge this week.  Also a huge welcome to the new design team.  You can read about them here

These are the easiest little things to create.  Just flatten a cardboard tube, glue one end, and decorate away.  I used a wallpaper sample to cover the entire tube.  I  punched the bottom edge with the Upper Crest border and then added some hot pink glitter along the top.  I used a little lace for a more frilly look.  Then layering, layering, layering.  I used a digital red label, crown ticket, and sheet music background to achieve this.  Added a little twine, some seam binding, and a tiny flower.  You know me!  With some distressing!  :-)

Challenges I would like to enter this in:
Totally Gurjuss: #82 twine (brown twine)
C.R.A.F.T.:#104 alter/recycle (cardboard tube and wallpaper sample)
Card Cupids: Ribbons/Fibers (lace, twine, and seam binding)
Paper Sundaes: #71 Shabby Chic
2 Sisters: #41 Anything Goes
Crafts 4 Eternity: #21 Alter something
Challenge Up Your Life: #44 Recycling

Also a peek at a itty bitty baby jar I altered for a whimsy swap I am in!

Thanks for stopping by!
