Happy Earth Day

In observation of Earth Day, I decided to use recycled materials for my crafting project today. Isn't this adorable!? I can see this as a great presentation for a sweet little hostess gift, baby shower gift, mother's day, birthday, thank you......anything!!! My mind is reeling with a zillion color schemes and pattern paper choices! And you can make these in larger sizes too if you so desire.

and the tag, in keeping with the Earth Day theme, is a garden apron and leaf. Sentiment is from My Creative Time's newest release, Bloom Where You Are Planted. (the view is sideways so you can read the tag)


This is the packaging from a set of BigShot cutting pads.

Cut the centers out and discard the outer ridged parts, so you have two nice sized, flat pieces to work with.  Cut them to size for whatever project you are making. I'm doing a gift-bag-in-a-box. Usually made with paper, but let's see how it looks made from this clear packaging!

That's all for today. I hope you enjoyed this little project. Such a fun one too. :) What's the last thing you used in your crafting that normally gets thrown out?

  2. This is so inspiring. I repurpose everything...even if it takes me months to be inspired to use whatever "it" is. This week's kick is aluminum cans!
