Advent Calendar 3rd decembre


For me, recycling has become an important part in my life. I hate to throw away things that look useful especially when I think about the material waste. Even when you can recycle the packaging like paper or plastics, it means that you need a lot of energy to do so.
At Christmas we often consume more than at any other time of the year: Presents, wrapping paper, food, food packaging, Christmas cards – to name only a few.
So, I decided to use my blog in December to show recycling projects. I try to post a new project every day. Well, some projects won’t be new, as I will also repost published projects.

When you look carefully, you’ll notice that I haven’t published the last two posts on the days I intended to do. I was just too busy to publish them.
But today I’m back in my schedule.

Today, I have only a tiny bit of recycling for you. Some years ago I was given a bunch of paper napkins from pattern books – the books from which shop owners can order which napkins they want to stock.
I took some blurry pictures then. But you can imagine what treasure this is for me.

So, I made a card today from a christmas napkin I glued to white paper with a simple gluestick.
I also used a tattered music sheet and a tiny bit from a rescued ribbon.
I’ll enter this card into the UnstampaBelles Christmas challenge which starts today.
