CD Sunday - Recycling

I love craft recycling and this theme was one of my suggestions and choice so I will be choosing the Top 3 this week.
Here is my contribution and hopefully - inspiration.

My recycled part is the flowered frame which is the top of a Sainsbury's tissue box.  I scanned one of the flowers on the side panel of the box and traced it on parchment to make the central flower which has been embossed, coloured and pricked. The yellow and blue backing papers are from Carol Ann's Studio CD 12 - Patchwork Petals and the little flowers are punched from bp trimmings.

There are so many things that can be recycled  so I am hoping to see a bumper crop of entries.

I am visiting the Make-It Show this weekend so I will be looking for a special little something for the Top 3 winner.

Just to continue the recycling theme but not part of my DT remit  - have a look at these ATC's.

 The first one is from a parchment sample card I made sometime ago cut down and a flower added.  The second is a tag from a card I just didn't send to anyone and the last uses one of those little purse calendars with added clock charm and beads.  No Cd's involved in these but I could have easily used something from a CD.  I recently made 36 such ATC's.  I was having a very strict clear out and instead of throwing stuff away I reused as much as I could.
I have a confession to make.  I am awaiting delivery of a 'craft cupboard' and so I need to be  organised before it arrives so a mega  sort out and tidy up is under way.  I have chosen the Sewing and Quilting model. I don't sew but this model will take my computer  in place of the sewing machine.


  1. I just knew Recycling was your choice Carol! Another great card and the ATCs are lovely.
    Hope you don't have to wait too long for the craft cupboard to arrive.
