Up cycling our challenge on TIOT this week

I was a little stumped this week and then remembered the lovely book about book recycling that Dee bought me for Mothers day.  I have been meaning to sort some readers digest books for a while to use, a little difficult as my late husband had bought them for me.  One was in a real state of dis-repair so I used that one, to create my projects and I still have half a book and cover plus some lovely pictures from the book.  My only extras were some distressed ink and some scrap card from the throw out box.  Thank you to Debbie for the crumpling, distressing and inking.

 These are tags made from one page from the book and then crumpled etc
 These are flowers folded in the kusudama style using papers cut into squares of various sizes.
The folded book could be used as storage for business cards or letters, I put tags in using scraps of left-over pages.  Almost a truly re cycled project.  Thank you foor looking.  Hugs Bee

DT project for SSS

Hopefully this will post on the right day?

This little project was lifted from Wednesday Splitcoaststampers  tutorial found here .   I used papers to cover the holder instead of stamped images, they are from our stash I have a feeling they are Do-crafts ones.  The image is found here she is a really cute beastie image.

 I used the image to make a selection of note cards for the inside.

 This is the back, anything needs to be laid flat as it is 
is going in a purse.

Thank you for looking, hugs Bee
