Crafty Ho Challenge - RECYCLE!

In honor of Earth Day later this month, Crafty Ho's  Challenges decided to use *RECYCLING* as the theme for this weeks challenge. We hope you will join us in celebrating and showing us how and what you can recycle into your cards and projects! Check the DT samples at the Crafty Ho Blog, as well as my own below!

My project features a coordinating 'vase' and notebook set. The 'flowers' are made of materials including stirrers, recycled, used/distressed swap envelopes, buttons from an old shirt, paint chip sample cards, brown paper bags, and a Prima bottle. The recyled paper pad features a paint and countertop color samples, reused scrap DP flowers, leftover jewelery findings/brads, and a reused envelope stamped with a cute Hero Arts stamp set.

This project was combined with the following challenges:
