More Inspiration from the Design Team

We have seen some inventive ideas for recycling in your entries.  The mesh bags are proving to be a big favourite for adding texture to your creations.  Thanks for joining in.  Here are a few more ideas from the Design Team on ways that you can recycling those items around the house.
All perfect for our Recycling Challenge #8

Annmaree made some monsters from bread tags on a card. She has used a little paint and googlie eyes.  Aren't these just the cutest......I am now saving all my bread tags.

JanR has used ribbon scrap, bling from a card that she describes as an epic fail and an ancient Dymo Labeller that she rescued from being thrown in the trash.  I just love the whole grunge look...the background is so terrific.

Monica - has made a quick card with bits of an old birthday invitation...
Thomas and the borders have been cut out from the invite while the clouds stickers and balloons are from her stash.
Monica popped up the balloons and Thomas image with dimensional foam dots.
Ordinary sewing thread was used to tie the balloons.

 Susan has very cleverly used the packing that came with this terrific frame.  The black is the backing card for the frame package.  Susan has also reused the acetate that the frame was sitting on to put inside the frame.  The flower image is the background packing to the beautiful adhesive stones she has used.  What a wonderful way to recycle using the item and the packaging.

So come on in and join in our wonderful recycling challenge #8 here.  Remember if you include a paper bead on your creation you receive a bonus entry.  Which gives you and extra chance to win the fantastic prize pace from Cardmaking Online.

You have until Friday the 2nd March to enter.
