"Save the Earth" FCCB Cricut Crawl

Welcome to Simply Frenzied and the SEVENTH Fantabulous Cricut Crawl...Fantabulous Cricut's version of a Blog Hop!

In honor of our Home Planet, Mother Earth, we're having a "Save the Earth" Crawl...each Design Team member will be featuring an original Upcycled-Themed Project that includes at least one Reuseable/Recycled Item along with at least ONE Cricut Cut.

If you've come from visiting Judy at you're in the right place! If you've just happened across my blog and would like to play along with our Fantabulous Cricut Crawl, start HERE

Make sure to check out each DT member's blog for some awesome inspiration! There will be PRIZES along the way at our DT members' blogs, AND there will be a Grand Prize up for grabs at FCCB for one participant that submits a "Save the Earth" project at FCCB!

How fun is that?

For my project... I made two 3-1/2" x 6-1/2" tags. 
I used 3 Up-cycled items:

1.) cardboard, trimmed to size.

2.) covered with pattern paper bag that I received from a purchase at a scrapbook, trimmed to size.

3.) soup can pull top tab attached with a brad.

My Cricut cut is from the Elegant Edges, pg. 65, <Flower3> and <Flwer3-s> using the oblong feature cut at 4".  All embellishments, stamp and ink were used from my stash.

I have blog candy to giveaway (I'll post a picture Monday night). 

However, in order to be eligible to win my blog candy, you must complete the following:
