Bring recycling to your handmade cards

If you enjoy making your own handmade cards keep in mind that there are many items around you everyday that you can incorporate into your creative pieces. Below is a list of items you can use to get you started:

When the Party is over
-gift wrap
-fancy or colorful napkins
-tissue paper (click for an example)

Around the house
-magazine pages
-Candy wrappers- hidden shiny insides
-old unused spare buttons
-flowers & leaves: pressed and dried
-old greeting cards & envelopes
-make serendipity paper out of old scraps

After a shopping trip
-gumball trinkets
-paper bags (the pink background paper in the pictured card is a recycled bag received from a craft store)
-tissue paper
-merchandise tags
