CPC March Challenge

It's the first Wednesday in March, which means it's time for a new prompt at Child's Play Challenges!  This month, we want to see how you are inspired by pipe cleaners, like those you see in the images above.

Supplies: strawberry paper from Jillibean Soup; journaling tags & striped paper from Crate; upcycled clothing tag; label stickers from October Afternoon; tab sticker & "Sweet" sticker from Echo Park; all other stickers from Bo Bunny; Candi dots from Craftwork; paint from Ranger; pens from Zig; household stapler; pipe cleaner & kitty bead from my stash.

For my DT sample, I decided that soft, fuzzy pipe cleaners were the perfect accent for a page about my soft, fuzzy cat.

I used a pipe cleaner as a photo border.  To dress it up, I strung a Hello Kitty bead onto it, and I attached the pipe cleaner to my photo mat with staples.

I also stapled tiny snippets of pipe cleaner onto the journaling tags.  This makes a unique change from the string or ribbon that one usually sees at the tops of tags.

I am really enjoying being a part of Child's Play Challenges.  The whimsical inspiration images and think-outside-the-box challenges are so fun.  I hope that you'll get a chance to join in the fun and play along with us this month.  You have until March 30 to upload your layouts to the CPC blog.  Happy scrapping!

MMM, pipe cleaners. I have some garish metallic ones in the cupboard. Mostly I wrap them with fabric to use in fabric collages.
Your pictures are beautiful

Other than my Reinbeers at Christmas I haven't played with pipe cleaners for years. Great idea on the layout.
