One AREtsian Gal's Trash is Another's Treasure

I hope it is anyway! I recently joined a swap, my first one ever, and it was alot of fun. The rules for this swap were to make something, a nice something, by recycling, reusing, and repurposing. I was so pleased with what I made I was tempted to keep it for myself.

The low down: This is a mini album made with paper lunch bag pages bound with an old shoelace and a cardboard cover upholstered with my old belt and beloved cords. Inside are bottle cap flowers and can tab embellishments and my favorite feature, tags made of old postcards! I was so excited about this simple idea, postcards are the original journaling spot. I also threw in a few can tab snakes for her kiddos.

It is soooooo cute! I love it. I can't decide what to put in it yet. *laughs* I'm so bad about that, you have no idea how many cute little albums are in my house sitting empty.

But yours is sitting on my front table! I've shared it with anyone who comes over,he he.

The boys love their snakes. They have had so much fun wiggling them about.
