Save the Earth Cricut Crawl!!!!!!!

Welcome to Redheaded Crafter 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 the very talented Amy Jo, 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 have recycled a toilet paper roll!  Who doesn't have a few of those in their house????  My dad's birthday is tomorrow, and I needed a gift card holder, so... VOILA!  A toilet paper roll has been given a new life!  :)
