Recycle/Use your Stash

Hello and welcome to the Papercrafting World Recyle/Use your stash challenge. I have to say this was a hard one for me. I'm not good at using what I have. Half the fun of papercrafting is buying the supplies, but I dug deep inside myself to find some willpower and used some supplies I already had to make this cute little card.

This little turkey stared out as an Easter Chick. You can see the cutting file here. All I had to do to turn him into a turkey was to cut another foot to use as his turkey waggle thingy (not sure of technical name for that). To keep in the spirit of using what I have in my stash, I used some artificial leaves I bought a few years ago for his feathers. To finish the card off I used some fall striped paper I have had in my stash forever. I bought a whole pack of it at a discount store and it's going to take a while before I run out.
If I have inspired you to recycle something you already have or to just use what you have in your stash, please join our challenge at www.cookingwithcricut.com
