Another Wednesday, and another WOYWW with Julia.  This is my little tray at the moment, all full of papers and DST!  I was making this card, and saw the backing from the finished peel offs I'd just used and the tumbleweed moved...yes it actually moved...and I had a lightbulb moment!

It was just perfect to add as a mat for some backing papers I had and it was just perfect when I put them together!  As a crafter I can find a use for most things, the packaging of craft items always comes in handy somewhere!
I'll have to show you this card when it's finished.  I've got so many ideas running around my head at the moment, it's making a few tumbleweeds wobble around!!!!
Don't forget to check out my special cards, now completed, which you saw the beginnings of in a previous WOYWW post.
Happy WOYWW!

It's great to be able to re-cycle - there is so much stuff wasted in packaging - I like to try and give everything a second existance - lol. x Jo

I do consider all of the ideas you've presented in your post. They are very convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are too quick for novices. Could you please extend them a bit from next time? Thanks for the post.

Great post and idea, Karen! I'm trying to remember to look at things in new light and think about how they can be upcycled. You are an inspiration!

Hey, I have a tumble weed moment when I remember what I went for shopping for when I get into the shop!! Cos most of the time, I walk in there and get everything bar what I went for in the first place!! Even this explanation sounds like gobbledygook....sigh :)
hugs, LLJ 45 xx

Crafters never throw anything out. We never know when they my come in handy. Ask me about the stack of toilet paper rolls I have. #110

Oh I know those lights-on moments and love 'em. I tend to write them in a book and then go back to them. Sometimes they're still good, sometimes not ;-)
Desk and papers looking good.
