Cricut Botanical Guitars and tie dye paper for Bitten by the Bug 2's Recycle challenge

Good morning and welcome to the latest Bitten by the Bug 2's challenge:  Recycle.  This could be recycle, upcycle or repurpose.  I used a couple of card bases I acquired from a creative reuse store. Scrap it Up.  I am lucky enough to have two in my city.  I thought I could do something "more" to these cards and these Cricut cuts are perfect.

Here's a close up of the guitar head with flowers from Botanical Guitars.

I have four cards but of all the images I cut, I only like the above cut and the below cut from Quarter Note.  I have made this guitar years ago, I can't remember what colors I made it but I settled on a pearly white and silver for this cut.

  1. Rock on with the wonderful guitar creations. I've used the Quarter Note cartridge for guitar & drums. My daughter learned to play acoustic guitar when younger and in last yr she learned to play electric with online instructions.
