how to a keyring car made of meds wrappings or, just a very green crafty car:-)
My md was leaving his old job for a new one.
I liked him very much , and had to laught a lot of him,
One day i had an appointment with an other persone at his place. We were talking of a subject and suddenly he was coming in to ask if his key were laying there.
I reconized this too well, so i had to laught, he asked suddenly Jet did you have hide them?
No i answered him but with a very big smile. still laughting.
So he asked me again.I knew that it was just my laughting that made him wondering.LOL
It made him just a normal persone for me.;-D
I wanted to make a goodbye gift for him and something with a keyring because of this story.
so i thought i must make it of just medican wrapping wich i got of him in a car for his working place.
He loved this gift very much and had to laught of the story behind it and that it was made of his prescribtion meds.LOL (Like concerta and ritalin.;-D)

so i thought perhaps you like this too.
and thought i will make a tute of it. But because i forgot to take pictures i had to made a new one.
but.... i was forgotten to finishing this so after two years i found the project agian and finely i finished it.LOL

notes;
Don't be fraitend, i made all those steps to make it just easier to follow, it's less complicated!!!!
time is without drying time.
Read first the steps i have found out that you must make the back bumper much lower for fixing the spare tyre more on the right place between the bumber and the back window/door.t
this didn't costed me anything because i used all scraps and recyling materials.

Wish you much crafting fun with making your own green car, Be creative and a crafty girl.
Thank you very much for stopping by.;-D
