Tutorial & Candy Winner...

Hi everyone!

Today I have a tip for you... I'll tell you something that can save up some time and environment. :) I've got into a habit of upcycling cardboard and thick paper. Whenever I need any sturdy card I know I have a stash and I don't need to spend any money. I use my Purple Cows Trimmer to cut the box into either rectangles or squares, that way when I want to use any pieces I know that they'll be rectangular or square. 


From one box I have at least 2 pieces which are the same size. From this box I have got 4 pieces!

 

Below is my stash... It took only 3 weeks to collect all of the pieces!


Huge thank you to everyone for taking part in my candy!

And now onto the candy winner... Alizabethy!

Congratulation! Please contact me on magdalena.brauer@gmail.com with you contact details. :)

Congratulations to the winner and thanks for sharing the handy tip about saving cardboard - I've saved photo envelopes and toilet roll inners for projects but really neglected all the other card that comes into the house - will look at it now with fresh eyes. Thanks, Elizabeth x

What a great idea! I love upcycling. I like to make holders for my clear stamp sets out of cereal boxes :)
