So Recycle project two involved using those ribbons that come attached to tags for clothing. Some of them are beautiful. I also enjoy those tiny little safety pins that are used to adhere the tags to the garment. So I indulged my ATC addiction by making some more Valentine ATC's!!!
This was done with a heavily layered base that was on recycled cardboard. I then added a heart with the words BE MINE which were cut from a old children's book. My favorite part is the red/white ribbon that was from a clothing tag.
This was done on recycled card board. The lace on the right edge is taken from a recycled wool skirt. This was used to secure the lining seam. I then used an old dictionary definition for Romanticism. The circle is a SIZZIX die cut from an old book. The heart is made from my favorite fabric paper, that is a culmination of recycled images. Finally, the key ribbon is from a garment. These satin ribbons are often used by retailers to keep garments from falling off of hangers. I usually cut them out, and save them for these very projects. The heart with the key hole is from a broken piece of jewelry from my junk box. Finally the brass tiny safety pin is recycled from a garment tag! All the cast off's can come together to make a romantic ATC.
ATC 135 Saying Good-Bye
This was done on recycled cardboard. The heart that is gold in color was made from recycled plastic grocery bags. The second heart was made from old sheet music. The ticket in the lower right corner was from a musical that I had seen back in 2012! The twine under the text is from a garment tag!
Hope you enjoyed the recycling project #2.
