Welcome back to another Ten Things Tuesday with Practical Scrappers. Today we wanted to highlight
Now as tiny things go, bottle caps aren't teeny but sometimes fitting them into a layout can be a bit tricky. I've had these sitting on my desk for months just screaming to go on a page.
These caps aren't from the scrapbook aisle - I just used my Imaginesce D-stress to remove the branding and rough them up. I also used my Crop-o-dile to punch holes in the sides so I could run the twine through.
Then I went old school and used a hammer and screwdriver to punch a hole in the top to run some tiny brads through so the bottle caps would look "nailed" onto the page.
Inspiration for this layout came from a group of my FB friends, Erin asked us to use something from the adage "old, new, borrowed, blue."
Old: Fancy Pants Rough & Tough and Kraft Kuts papers
New: the hospital wrist band is only a couple of months old
Borrowed: I reused all those bottle caps!
Blue: yep, there's a few things on here. ;)
