We are big supporters of recycling at my house. I have even brought home the empty fast food cardboard boxes to put in recycling. So the recycling challenge at A Blog Named Hero was an easy one. I save Christmas Cards that people send us and reuse parts to make new cards. I have 3 to share made from cards a fundraiser group sends out.
The image is cut from the front of a card, mounted on solid blue. The background paper is from the envelope. I added snowflake sequins (from SU). The next card image is from the inside of the same snowman card. I stamped a little snowman, colored it, and cut it out to glue to the image. Added some scrap trim, ribbons, and a snowflake charm (also from SU)
This last one is the front of an unused envelope. I stamped and colored the snowman nativity from The Angel Company into the oval. Added the sentiment and a glitter star.


  1. I love that you are such a diligent recycler! These cards are great!

  3. These are lovely. Thats a great idea to recycle old cards! Thanks for joining us at A Blog Named Hero :)
