Stash Your Trash!

No matter how green we try to be...reuse...recycle...there's always some form of trash left over. We always end up throwing some things away in a trash can, bag, or other container to keep until collection day rolls around.

Your challenge is to make a container to "stash your trash". It can be an altered soup can, a fry box, an altered paint can/lunch box, a tin container, a decorated bag, etc. Anything that can be used to "stash your trash" is acceptable for this challenge. Use your creative imagination! The sky's the limit on this one, use decorative papers, embellishments, ribbon, glitter, stickers - whatever you'd like to decorate your flashy, trashy container. Brownie points if you incorporate a recycled item or include something green on your project. I was visiting a friend in Massachusetts this weekend and did not have time to make an example for this challenge but I know y'all will come up with some fabulous creations.

Remember, there are no time limits, vendor restrictions or other rules for the challenge. It's only for fun and inspiration. When uploading your card to Splitcoaststampers, Papercraft Planet, StampTV or any other site, please use the keyword RESQ05TT. And whenever you upload to a site or you blog, be sure to link back here using so we can all see what you've done! You can use Mr. Linky below!


  1. I have just the thing for this challenge...just need a few "kid" free moments to pull it together!

  2. This was fun, quick and got me thinking about how else I could decorate/use those containers. If this keeps up we won't have any trash!! Thanks for a great challenge. Helen
