Every year I make my sweetie a handmade Valentine. Last year I made this. This year, I wanted to make something that would keep in line with my desire to tread more lightly on the earth-something both my sweetie and I care a lot about. So, without buying anything for this project, I set out to make a token of my love with only recycled items. This was given today, a little early, but who needs to wait to say I love you? Not me.
I used these items:
Cereal box, plastic bag, CD, bottle cap, single earring charm, magazines and lots of glue. I try not to buy magazines- only ones that I plan on keeping forever, like my Veggie Times and Martha Stewarts. The magazines that I used have been laying around at work for months. I figured I’d snag them and put them to use before they were trashed. It’s amazing all of the different words and images you can find in magazines. Who needs prepackaged words and images for scrapbooking when you have magazines!
