Blogger's Challenge #161: Use Something Recycled

I usually struggle with this type of challenge and when I told Lisa S. that she gave me some ideas to springboard what I could do.  I also needed a bridal shower gift so this is what I came up with!

I recycled pieces of cardboard to make templates!
Then I used a tool I've had around for a long time to inscribe a metal cake pan with the couple's last name initial with a little design around it. 
The tool is called an Inscriblio. I may have worn it out with this project. If I were going to do many of these, I would have to look at getting a tougher tool. But, it worked for me this time!



Thanks for looking and be sure to check out what the other girls did to turn trash to treasure!
