Then I was gathering the recycling the other day and there was a wonderful cosmetic box but it had writing and logo printed all over it which looked very tacky. So, I cut the box apart and glued some vintage gardening pages to each side. Then I shaped and punched a hole and stamped on the backside of the tag/bookmark. A little piece of ribbon and it is looking much better.
I like to think of these as finished now. I applied a packing tape transfer to the front side and did some more stamping with a subtle gold and silver floral motif. I think these will make a very fine bookmark or placeholder for someone. This was very easy and fun and saved our landfill. I have already prepared more of these for embellishing and gifting.
It only takes time and thought and not a lot of money if you use what you have to create something useful.
Enjoy your middle of the week and Happy creating...

What a Fabulous idea! These are truly beautiful! Have sincerely enjoyed your recents visits to my place, and so glad I popped over this morning. Have to confess..this newest canvas has me on my feet bright and early each day. Don't ya just love it when something new and exciting tugs at your shirt-tail? Only another creative-soul can truly relate to the lift our souls receive when creating.ReplyDelete
