Crafty Sentiments-Summer Theme

Hello everyone. Summer vacation is in full swing here.  This week for the Crafty Sentiments Challenge-Summer, I decided to change my creative juices just a little and do an altered upcycle piece. I have been seeing other use mint boxes and convert them into holders for earphones so I decided to do one for when we head out to the beach and stuff.

Since coffee is my favorite drink, I usually have quite the stash of breath mints on me. I took the adorable stamp, Bubbles, and colored it up with my Copics. I then used my circle Spellbinder dies to cut the image out. I then use modge podge to glue it to the front of the case. I added a sparkle gem over the starfish on the image.

Hope you enjoy this project. I now have to do a few more as my daughters want one for themselves.

I will also be entering this one into the following challenges:

City Crafter's Challenge-Lets go Nautical
Ike's Challenge-Fantasy
All Crafts Challenge-Anything but a card
Oddball Stamp Art-Summer Fun
Recycle, Repurpose, & Reinvent-Anything Goes
