Recycled packaging.

I was lucky to be treated by my hubby to some new threads. 140 of them :o))
They came in 7 packs of 20 threads.


Once they were emptied out the pile of plastic packaging looked like this...


I felt it was a waste to just dispose of it in the bin.
Out came the Big Shot and the embossing folders.

Just a few examples of the results:






As some of the folders curled the plastic.
They went into a flower press and even the paper inlay got used as a divider between each embossed sheet.


Love the result.
I think they will be used as dividers in my new/old recycled ring binder.

Before you throw those empty packets in the bin...take a fresh look at them.

Now That is Clever! Lovely results - who'd have thought you could make such fab things with packaging that you got "for free"?

Wow, what a clever idea. They will definitely make very pretty page dividers in a notebook!

Have fun.
