Packaging! Upcycle/recycle

Supplies:  Follow your heart stamp set - My Mind's Eye,
 Aquamarine Archival ink - Ranger, Mini white luggage tag, 
Rich Cocoa ink - Memento, aqua washi tape - The Greeting Farm, 
red washi tape - Queen & Co, heart punch - X-Cut, Ribbon -, 
Manilla tag - Ranger Industries, flower - stash, pearls - Icon Craft.

The Challenge this week on Paperplay is "Upcycle/Recycle".

I needed to package up some items for my niece and decided to recycle some card packaging (cellophane bag). I used tissue paper and punched red/teal circles and hearts from some textured pp to create the confetti to add to the package. I added one tiny heart to the tag.

I love using bright colours on my projects. I used stamped images in rich cocoa as my base layer and then added the colours with flower, washi tape and ribbon. 
 Thanks for peeking- hope you have a wonderful day.
