Recycle Massacre

The theme at the Crafters Café this time is recycle:  here!

and the sponsor I used is Dr Digi: doctor-digi

I recycle cans like this:

Image: Dr Digi - Leatherface
Coloured with Copics
Bricks EF: Sizzix - Tim Holtz - swiped with D.Inks
Blood on wall: Glimmermist, dribbled on
Skull & Slogan Stamps: Tim Holtz
Also: yarn, Kindyglitz, black pen, distress inks

How to: When you need to open a can with a tear tab top, just open the bottom of the can 7/8 way round with a can opener.   Clean well and dry out thoroughly in oven.   Fill with sweets, socks, or any gift that fits, put a circle of card over to stop hot glue getting on the stuff inside, then use hot glue gun to seal the lid closed. Decorate.  (I usually put a felt circle on the bottom to hide the mess I make with the hot glue gun!).  Tie ribbon or something else through the pull tab.   People always wonder how you got the stuff inside, especially kids.
The slogan reads: embrace imperfection ( I love it and do!)
This particular image is so suitable for a mini first aid kit, or maybe Halloween.
