April is a-flyin’ by! There are only a few days left to bust through that stash! As part of our stashbusting challenge, we randomly selected a few lucky DSC readers to be Super Secret Stashbusters and sent them boxes full of all kinds of random goodies. The finished projects have been coming in, and you guys are awesome! We’ve showed you a few projects already, but here’s a more complete roundup of the submissions we’ve seen so far.
Challenge sponsor and participant Marisa Pawelko made a girly toilet roll cover that she shared with us last week, making some not-so-pretty components into a beautiful creation.
Stashbuster Tanya has posted a couple of her stashbusting projects so far on her blog, ScrappyLand, USA. First she used a pair of fuzzy mittens to embellish an Easter gift bag, and she also used her new Westcott Brand scissors and some felted sweater material to make a scrappy flower.
Caro, one of our Canadian bonus stashbusters who got a box of goodies from Until Wednesday Calls, made a monogram frame that she shared on her blog, Caro’s Thrifty Adventure, and we shared with you last week as well.
Craft foam has been a hot item from the stashbuster boxes, and thanks to Creative Hands Crafts there was plenty to go around! We’ve seen some great uses for it so far. Aunt Peaches over in Illinois used some to make a crazy pendant lamp reminiscent of Pee Wee’s Playhouse.
Our UK stashbuster, Sam, sent us a rundown of how she made a kawaii-style cookie greeting card using craft foam.
In Texas, Jackie (who started a new blog, My Crafting Projects, just for this challenge) used some sheets of foam and some pipe cleaners from her stash box to make a puzzle frame.
There are more projects to come, so stay tuned!
