So if you guys didn't already know.. I am a huge recycler.
I am always holding onto these little packages that embellishments come in.
Heres one way of turning that cute packaging into a mini album.
7Gypsies packaging is a great example.
Let me show you how to turn this little beauty into something spectacular!
This gorgeous little chipboard piece is the covering to the AMAZING little elastics that come in you FRENCH TOAST kit.
Fold the package in half, tucking one edge under the packagings flap... like a matchbook.Here's another view
Next cover your book with patterned paper..
I used a GCD paper form their PARIS NIGHTS collection.
It is velvet flocked..very chic.
And fold in half.
I cut 4 pieces , and adhered them, back to back to each other.
I mixed up the papers form the kit.
And then add photos and embellies.
I hope this inspired you to use those covers from your products.
I also wanted to share this little accordion mini I created for my Dad for his 60th birthday!I created this using scraps and a vintage matchbox...
it only took about 20 mins to create.
(Thanks Elaine for the fabulous goodies, including this matchbox)
So go dig through your recycle box, and see what treasures you can create with.
See you tomorrow,
