Recycling at Christmas

Hi, thanks for your visit today!

This is an easy project, that I made using only a clean tin and some leftovers...

You will need an empty tin.

Line the tin with black cardstock

Using an oak leave paper punch, cut many leaves in various shades of green cardstock. Color them with reddish tones, to make them look natural. Put on top a golden ribbon, add a bow and a rhinestone. Add some leftover Christmas decorations.

Put inside the can a battery’ candle and fill with green moss.

As I said, very simple! I hope it will inspire you to recycle your leftovers. The more we recycle, we will leave a cleaner world to our children:)

My first 2010 Christmas project, easy, easy...

This project is so easy that I will decorate many candles this year! I used candles with batteries, in order to place them anywhere. I used vellum and holographic cardstock. I cut the vellum in different sizes, rolled up and glued on the ends. I cut the cardstock with different punch papers and my Cuttlebug dies, then I added them to the rolled vellum using glue dots and that's it, ready! The easiest Christmas project of all my life!

Note: I am very responsible when using batteries. I always deposit them in appropriate containers for recycling:)

Thanks for your visit today!

To make this beautiful corner, I used an old copper-colored metallic cap of a bottle of wine that I had in my recycling box. I cut it carefully, used a tool to make it flat and then cut it using a corner Spellbinder (I cannot remember exactly the name) and my Cuttlebug.

Super easy! Furthermore, these metallic cups come in different colors. You can also use them with your embossing folders. The results are beautiful:)

Recycling project

I made this project to share my recipes with some friends, which asked me for them. I used a CD case, which I found very functional because it can be open and, as it support itself, you can see the recipe easily. I put a little ring in a corner of the printed papers to have all the recipes together.

I guess it can be also used to keep some tips of other artistic skills, like quilting and embroidering tips, knitting and crocheting patterns... anything you can print, cut in CD size and want to keep.
