CDTA Bus Pass Crafts

What can you make with CDTA bus passes? I have a lady who donates her clean CDTA bus pass swiper to me throughout the year. I use them for craft projects with the East Greenbush Girl Scouts during the summer time. I got inspired by one of the CDTA drivers to get more creative with the bus passes. I decided to make a bunch of ornaments and other craft projects that you can see below. I still have ideas roaming around in my head of possible ways to be creative with the bus passes. Stay tuned to see my future inspiration. 
 This what the front and back of the bus passes look like above.  Above picture: Miniature wreath made from CDTA bus passes that you can wear  since there is a pin on the back.
 Above picture: Wreath is made from CDTA bus passes, with quilling to decorate it with  bells, candle, green flower and other greenery and a red bow.
The above picture: Lotus flower made from CDTA bus passes. The passes where very slippery and this was the most frustrating project that I wanted…

Zentangles Fall through Winter 2016

These are zentangles I created between October to December 2016. Some came from inspiration from the web, others I learned new skills while taking Zentangle gems class, and just from my head in random play. Some may not be done so I may add shadows or add to some of them.  I used colored pencils and micron pens to create these designs.
