Ginger Snap Scraps: Around the House

Hi everyone! Thank you for stopping by today! Super excited to share with you a project today, some of the Ginger Snap Scraps Design Team Members and I will be showcasing a project that illustrates some of the products that can be found in the Ginger Snap Scraps Online Store.

Let's Begin! The Theme for today is called
"" Around the House"

Ever wonder what you can create with things that are laying around the house. It can be a kitchen sponge, egg carton, a pickle jar, or even a cereal box. But one thing for sure is that you can create just anything. For my project, I decided to use a Bread Crumbs Container as I realized after it was empty, I knew it can be turned into something. So I decided to create a cute piggy bank that can be served as a decoration for a baby shower. Hope you like it. As for the products I used for my project were Echo Park Hello Summer Theme Paper and American Crafts Ribbon. If you would like to purchase these items, please visit the Ginger Snap Scraps Online Store.

Piggy Bank Decoration

 I took a Bread Crumbs Container and took the Croc-dile and punch a hole on each side. I used some twine to measure each side just to make sure the holes are in the right place.
 Then I took two 6x6 sheets of Echo Park Paper and wrapped around the container.
 Then I decorated the container with American Crafts Ribbon and some baby embellishments. Then, I cut a slit on the lid for the money to be inserted. Now it is ready to be displayed on tables as a Baby Decoration for a baby shower.

To purchase some of the items I used and other items that you will be interested in.
