Hello everyone. This week I am thrilled to be a guest designer for Papercraft Star's Green Holiday Challenge. The challenge is to create a holiday gift, card or scrapbook layout using recycled or repurposed items you already have on-hand. A while back I saved an item from the trash at my husband's office. It was an outdated software packet. I thought it would make a perfect item to alter and use to hold photo CD's. I started with some mod podge and covered the outside cover with scrap papers I had. I then used an old doily (slightly torn) to cover the spine of the cover. Using some old gift cards that I ran through my sizzix, I cut out the bird on the bottom corner and covered it with vintage text. The lined paper is actually a cutting slip from Hobby Lobby which I then stamped the Eiffel Tower on. For the tassel, I used some broken necklaces along with some ribbon that I took off of baby clothes too worn to donate. The key is my favorite embellishment. I took an old key, inked it up in craft ink and embossed it with white embossing power. for the inside book I simply covered it with more scraps of printed papers. For added embellishment, I adhered an old applique to the cover. Well I hope you give this challenge a go. Thank you for taking a peek.
