Cell Phone Charging Holder




Hello everyone! I have a fun recycling project to show you that I did for the Fantabulous Cricut's Save The Earth Crawl challenge. The challenge is to make a project using a recycled item.
I have just recently started an account with Pintrest! OMGosh! It is so addictive, but you find some of the coolest things. That is where I found the idea for my project. You can see the full tutorial HERE.
I made a super cute charging holder station for my cell phone. I started with an empty lotion bottle and cut it into the holder shape. I found it easiest to cut by first starting with an x-acto knife and then with scissors. In the original tutorial she used fabric to cover her holder, but I used paper to cover mine. I did this with glue and decoupaged it. The hedgehog was cut from Live Simply and I stamped the face with a Peachy Keen Wide Eyed and Bushy Tailed face. This was super fun to make and oh so simple! Now my cell phone has a place to rest and without cords hanging out all over the place.
I just love making things with recycled items, the possibilities are endless. I hope you liked my project and thanks for looking! Have a great night!
P.S., as a side note, you might have noticed that I changed my blog AGAIN. This is because I was getting warnings that Shabby Blogs was full of malware. Anyone else have this happen? So I changed it to the fist thing I saw and it will stay like this until I figure out what is going on! LOL!

I SO need one of these. What an AWESOME idea and SO super cute. I had to change my blog too because I got the same malware warning. I just went with a generic blogger background for now. UGH. I like what you chose for yours. Hugs- Glora

Oh good golly...this is too stinkin' cute! What a great idea! I love Pinterest also and could spend HOURS on there looking at all the fun stuff! By the way, I love what you have going on with the new look. These colors and patterns are really pretty! And yes, I've read several people commenting about issues with Shabby Blogs, hope they get it all worked out soon!

Hey Gigi! Way to think outside the box with this challenge! Love it when we can repurpose things that really don't biodegrade easily and am thrilled you were able to make such a cool project from this bottle! Awesome idea! Congrats on making our Top 5 once again, my friend! ;)
