Craft Junkie Too Design Team Earth Day project

Hello there!!

It has been quite a while since I have posted on my blog or submitted a project as a member of the Craft Junkie Too Design team.  I almost forgot how to post!!

This month, our leader, Tracy, has asked us to create any project that shows recycling.

I made a shadow box showing my "Men" in my life.  My husband and my son.  The flowers are created using pages from an old telephone book.  We seem to get so many of these books every year and i wanted to make something with them.  The flowers were punched out and then misted with H2O and crunched up.  I like the look that they get when they are all 'unwrapped'.

I can't tell you how much I have missed my crafting time.  Since starting school in January I have not spent any time doing the thing i love - crafting!  The good news is that I will graduate in May!  Woohoo!!!

Please take some time and check out the rest of the design team posts!  You can start by clicking on this link!!!

I hope you have a wonderful SPRING day!!!  Please feel free to leave a comment - I need all the inspiration I can get!!!


  1. What a super fun project and a great way to use up some of the phone books that seem to multiple in our desk drawers. Hope to see more of your post - but totally understand that school is your priority right now - we will wait for your return. Thanks for sharing your fabulous flower creations with us.

  2. Hi Shawn,

    I just LOVE your flowers. I've crafted using phone book paper before but it didn't turn out this wonderful!! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

    Great job,
    Hugs, Cheryl @

  3. Oh this is just fantastic--I love the little banner & the crumpled flowers!! Great for a frame with male picures!!

  4. Wow Shawn, this is totally cool!! I especially love the crumpled flowers and then entire project is totally masculine even with the flowers.
