Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Being Earth friendly is not only "in" but it can also be fun and a great way to craft! One day I was thinking of recycling things for crafting and I found myself staring at a box. That box was the catalyst for this card!
I tore off a flap to the box and I used it just as it tore off. I did not cut it or alter it in anyway. I simply tried to fold it. Once folded, I sprayed it with a little bit of Glimmer Mist in Copper. I used a little bit of Crackle Paint on the bottom right of the card and I let it dry. While it was drying, I decided to use a Basic Grey chipboard piece and Prima flowers on the front. I stamped a "1 of a kind" sentiment from Hero Arts on top of the Crackle Paint.

This was a very fun way to recycle an item I had in my home and I look forward to bringing you more recycling and/or Earth friendly projects this month!

Nice way of recycle. Very interesting.
Here I give other idea and is reuse.
http://www.givingetting.com allow people to give and get stuff they no longer need or to get what they need and don´t have, donating or getting it for reuse, achieving longer product cycle and also keeping useful stuff out of landfills.
