I had my friend Emily over on Sunday afternoon to make cards with me and then the kids have had fun joining me these last two days.
I really have a lot of fun using up things that would otherwise be thrown away or recycled on my cards. All of the cards pictured have a card stock base (generally a half sheet of either white or cream) but everything else on the card (other than tape, glue or glitter) is stuff that has been recycled. Some of the things I save for my card making are:
- Junk mail- sometimes there are really pretty or colorful ones that add a lot to card making.
- Colorful envelopes that are sent to me.
- Old Cards
- Kid's paper's that they bring home from church, etc.
- Church bulletins
What have you been making?
