April Earth Day Projects

So I decided that to celebrate Earth Day I would find things around the house and scraps that I had and create use them on my cards and scrapbook pages.

I gathered scrap paper, old magazines, and used dryer sheets 

In my card class we made 3 cards

I used the dryer sheet to make the flower on this card
 Turns out I have hundreds of used dryer sheets in my house.  I usually use then to dust and remove glitter from my craft table.  I had so many I figured why not try crafting with them.  I cut three circles out of the dryer sheet.  I used a stamping sponge to sponge color on one of the circles.  I used the colored circle in the middle and held all three pieces together with a brad.  I used a dimensional to attach it the card.  Super cute and it smells good.

We made the frame for this card using the scraps I had left from other projects.
First I cut the scrap into stripes and adhered them to a piece of card stock 4 1/4 x 5/1//2

Then I ran ran it thru the Big Shot using the framelits.

For this card I used the magazine to punch out circles and then I matted them on extra card stock.

 It was a nice way to use up my scraps and super easy.
Again, super easy and a great way to use up stuff I horde, I mean store :)

Thanks for looking.  Happy Earth Day.

  1. Terrific ideas to use up things around the house. I especially like the frame card using strips. I will have to save some dryer sheets. Great creations. Hugs.
