This is the start of an inspiration patch, where I hope that fellow scrappers and creators will come and find some inspiration, or even leave some inspiration for me.

Christmas Tag - Recycling

Hi Everyone

I am busy wrapping up some parcels and making tags and cards, as I go along. It's also a beautiful day in Africa, with beautiful sunshine and warmth.

I have a recycling project that I want to share with you, and that is a gift that I have put together for my aunt.
Firstly the bag is from last years gifts and I am re-using it for this years gifts.  I have also used a BoBunny jewels packaging as the base for my tag.

The flowers are diecuts from Elf Magic papers.

I love to re-use things and certainly get the most out of every scrap goodie that I have. I try not to waste anything, because at some point, every little scrap will find it's place! ;-)

Do you re-use and keep scraps?

Thanks so much for popping by!
Have a super, festive Sunday!

  1. I love this! I like to re-use! BTW - thanks for the comment on my blog. I iron my pages ilke this - The paper gets saturated with water and then mists, it's then dried completely in the sunlight, I then iron the paper with paper towels on each side on a flat surface (set on high) and then I put the paper under a heavy weight for a day or too. I do a few pages a time and store the ones I don't use away. Hope that helps! :D

    1. Thanks Chantal, that's super! I will definitely try it! ;-)

  2. Gorgeous Work! the colours and whole design of this is fabulous!
    Yes, I do keep every bits of the scrap, even ribbons that is one inch long, I keep them too, LOL! Like you said, somehow every scrap will find a place! : )

  7. So pretty. I keep everything because with punches & the like one can always find a use for something but I'm also giving a lot away these days because I believe the more one blesses others the more blessings come one's way too...
