Don't throw it away - can you re-purpose it?

Now don't get me wrong, I am not saying become a hoarder and never throw anything away. I am just encouraging you to look at items that normally would end up in a trash can thru a different lens. Exploring your imagination on how to use disposable items will provide you with the opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind masterpiece....guaranteed!

In my upcoming workshop, we will explore using everyday items to add a special touch to all occasion type cards, like birthday and thank you cards.

The everyday items I re-purposed included a Starbucks sleeve, tissue paper, string from clothing retail tags, scraps of paper, and a coloring book page. Coloring books are all the rage now.  

From this......

To these.......

Please join me at CraftFusion on Saturday, April 2, 2016 to learn how this transformation evolved into these cute all occasion cards. Sign up soon; space is limited. Can't wait to see you!  

Until then, what everyday items have you used in your craft or artwork?

Happy Crafting!
