Getting Krafty and Recycling!


Hi there!  It's time for another challenge at the Twisted Tuesday Challenge blog ~ Getting Krafty and recycling!   I just love the opportunity to reuse and repurpose any item rather than throw it away so this was a super fun challenge this week.  I reused almost everything on my card and made a matching envelope, too!  This week, we want you to use the color Kraft on your card and the twist is to use a recyclable item(s).


Here's what I recycled on this card :)  


* Butcher's Block paper {left over from VBS}
* The cardboard backing from a 12 x 12 dsp pack
* Valentine's Card Kit found for .10c at a Michaels clearance sale!


and the non recycled items are white cardstock, gorgeous crocheted flowers, a button, ric-rac, one sheet of DSP and some twine :)










We would love to see what you create with the Krafty/recycled challenge this week!  You can link up your cards here at the challenge blog!

  3. Great way to recycle these things. I love that too. Your card is awesome. Love the pink and brown together.

    We are not big football fans and we don´t see all the games. But of course, if Germany plays- we look.
    You DH will be happy...Spain is also in the next round.
