REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

Our challenge over at Let's Craft and Create is to use something recycled.  For example, some pretty ribbon from a chocolate box, buttons from clothing or even some packaging.....have a good rummage and see what you can find!

I am a big fan of clothes from Fat Face and White Stuff...love the styling and LOVE the labels they put on them!




Sometimes you even get very cute little garment pins too! Here's how I used them to make some Christmas Tags.




A very simple but effective project using gorgeous wool felt from The Ribbon Girl, Sizzix Dies, Waltzing Mouse Sentiment, Seed Beads and recycled buttons!
