Hello to our the wonderful Peacock friends and family. I hope you are all enjoying your day. I hope the summer weather is not to unbearable where ever you might live. Today is my day to share my fun project with you, and I hope I do not disappoint. It is a fast and easy project, but I am focusing on a main idea here.

Before I share my project with you, I want to give a huge shout out to my Peacock sister Rhonda. She saved my behind when I forgot I had a posting due. She and I traded days. So to you Rhonda, I say a huge Peacock

Now, on to my project:

Green Art. Or the thought of reusing objects rather than tossing them in trash. I got the idea while doing volunteer work the first of the month. At one point, I was helping to set up the tables in the “Green Zone”. That got me thinking, maybe I should be creating some “green” products for my booth and try to sell them. This is my starting point I still have to incorporate more ideas into the mix.

I started by using a cereal box, some Glue and Seal, and a paintbrush. I first cut the cereal box to fit within the area of my Big shot which is about 6”or so (I never measure, I just estimate it). I follow that up with a thin coating of the Glue N’ Seal. Thou, I learned not to thin, or your paper will eventually come up. Once the glue dried very good, I used my Sizzix die and cut out the gift card holder.

This project is so easy simply because the die also includes all of the necessary score lines, so all I needed to do at this point was fold it on the score lines, add a couple of pieces of Red Line Tape to the edges and tape it together. I like to use the thicker red tap to ensure the two folds do not come apart.

To complete the look, I added the perfect “Hello Kitty” fabric covered button from Pinque Peacock on top of my bow and a tiny Velcro dot on the inside to hold the flap closed. Finally, with the help of our wonderful Peacock Queen, I added the sentiment of "Kitty Kash" to the front of it. I also added a little handle to make it look like a purse. A great idea shared with me by my Peacock sister Rhonda. Thanks ladies for the Fab ideas.

Like I said super easy and fast. I hope you enjoyed it.
