Recycling and Card Making

Good Morning… It is Thursday and it is time for taking a coffee break with us at Coffee Loving Cardmakers.

Today we are talking about how we, cardmakers and papercrafters can be part of making the world green-er by recycling our coffee boxes and wrappers into something else.

I have been collecting some K-cups boxes and cup sleeves to use them as embellishments. For sample, I made a card using one of the the cups I cut out of the K-cup box.

I cooperate Paper-Smooches – Cyber Cafe stamp set on this card, stamped the background and sentiment using Distress Mini Ink Pads. The glitter papers and foil chevron papers from the pad I found at Walmart last Fall 🙂 I finished this card with orange twine from American Craft. I have Fall colors in my mind when I made this card.

I hope you will visit me at Coffee Loving Cardmakers today and share your ideas of recycling for making cards.

THANK YOU for stopping by today and have a fabulous day!

  1. Wonderful idea, Helen! I try recycling now and then..but not as often as I would have liked. But it is always fun to see how people do it, and do it so well! 🙂
