Hello everyone, hope you all had a fantastic time with your family and friends during the Holidays :-)
This month challenge for the PTI blog hop is it to "use scraps of wrapping paper, parts of holiday cards, recycle gift tags or bits of ribbon on a paper crafting project". I had plenty ideas for that and kept every little piece of wrapping paper, ribbon etc. when, by accident, my eye fell on a holiday mini album from a workshop last year that I actually never used or gave away b/c there was something wrong with the embossing powder. Either I applied to much heat or the powder was too old or faulty, however, the embossed star image was clear in the center and grey / whitish towards the edges. Ack! You can see my original post with the mini album here.
Instead of keeping it in my box just to throw it away someday, I decided to cut the front cover off of it and make it a simple little book for my thoughts and wishes for 2011. No, we're not talking new year's resolutions! ...for I already know, I won't keep them anyway ;) I rather think of something to keep focus on throughout the year, like in Ali Edwards "One Little Word" project.
So, that's my little holiday recycle project. I hope you like it and maybe feel inspired to do some recycling yourself. Have a fabulous blog hop!
