RemARKable Going Green Blog Tour - Post 2

Welcome back!  I hope you are enjoying all the great ideas for recycling, repurposing and reusing items using Stampin' Up! products.  Today I'm using something everyone with kids has - worn out jeans!
We'll take these and make them into this!
Isn't this great? Those ripped jeans are now an adorable pin!  I ran the material through the Big Shot with Stampin' Up! Flower Folds Die.  You can use so many different materials through your Big Shot - it's amazing!  I layered three sizes of the light and dark denim and held them together with a 5/8" jumbo brad.  You can use your Crop a Dile to punch holes to make this a breeze.  Glue on your pin back and you're done. Now, I also happen to have some tulle from years ago and ran that through the Big Shot too to see what that would look like. 

What do you think?  Adds a little something, huh?  Don't stop at jeans, either.  How about those cute dresses, skirts, tops, etc. that got a stain or rip?  Just avoid that area and you can create something fun!  Some of those items might even have a great button you could use for the middle too.   Now onto the next "Green" idea...
