Miria ( Using cardstock packaging, fabric scraps)

Bettina( backing paper for prima swirls)



Kelly (using a ribbon from a chocolate box)

Wilma(very old buttons from clothes)


 Before : a 15 year old purple skirt that I found in my 'scrap fabric' box
(kept because you never know when it will come in handy!)

During : whoops, there seems to be a bit missing now!!!!
(As Rolph Harris would say, "can you guess what it is yet?")

After : A cute little baggie, decorated with glittery lace, contrasting lilac stitching, glittered snowflakes (using the negative of a die cut snowflake as a template) and a Christmas image sewn on (boy, that part was difficult).

Once you have made your  Christmas project with recycling, add a direct link below so that we can come and visit you. Don't forget, our challenges last for two weeks....the linky will close on Tuesday 18th September, and you can enter our challenges as many time as you like - happy crafting!
