Crafty Cardmakers #56 - Recycle and DT Call

Our challenge this time is for you to recycle something and use it on your project.
So what do we define as recycling? Well you could for example turn a pringles container into a pen pot, the inside of a parcel tape roll to make a jewellery box. Alternatively just something on the project that is recycled, ie corrugated cardboard for background, bits of sweet box ribbon, shiny foil etc. The possibilities are endless and I am sure appeal to the little hoarder inside all of us Crafters.
We're very kindly sponsored again by the lovely Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her online shop.So why not hop on over to Crafty Cardmakers and join us!
We are also having a quick DT call as we have a few members poorly at the moment and one stepped down. If you are interested please put DT after your entry and we will pop along to your blog and have a look

Now onto my creation...


 
My 2 gift tags started life out as the cardboard in a board-backed envelope. I die cut this really sturdy cardboard (with a struggle lol) in my cuttlebug with a tag shaped die. Then I covered them with Tim Holtz music tissue tape. I then inked over the tape with Antique Linen distress ink.The white part of the snowflakes is also recyled from an old white envelope, which I cut into snowflakes using my Cricut, I also cut some smaller snowflakes from silver mirror card.The white buttons and ribbon are both from an old dress of my daughters.To finish I added some stickles to the snowflakes and to the ends of the ribbon.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Craft Your Passion - Snowflakes or Snowmen
Crafty Ribbons Challenge - Anything But A Card
Creatalicious Challenge - For Christmas with Sparkle
OLLCB Challenge - Bingo (ribbon,die-cut and sparkle)
