Hello readers and Happy Earth Day to you all! Did you know our Earth has over 6 billion people living on it?! How incredible that there’s something that can support all of us! Well, in honor of the Earth’s day today, we asked a couple pretty snazzy designers to make some “recycled” or “reused” cards for us! Check them out- the designers went above and beyond what we were even thinking!
This card is by Danielle Walls! She did the “Earth Day” theme in three different ways! First, she reused a card layout she’d already done in the past. Then, see that corrugated paper? It’s a Starbucks Cup Sleeve! Talk about recycling! And finally, obviously the loving tree and sentiment speak to the theme! Check out Danielle’s blog for fun tutorials and lots of inspiration!
Supplies to recreate with your own recycled elements:
For these two matching recycled projects, Linda almost used as much recycled as she did new! She used a cardboard box for the embellishment and gift tag, a button from an old shirt, left over string, a doily from underneath a cake, the smaller doily is from a cafe, a paper bag that used to hold Easter Eggs, and the zipper is from packaging that new bed sheets came in! Whoa! Such simple items to create these two beauties!
Supplies you can use with recycled items to create a similar look:
I hope this blog sparked some ideas in your head as ways to recycle random items into beautiful projects!
