I love recycling -- and here's one of my favorites for this time of year when it is time to put away all that Christmas stuff. Don't discard those beautiful "commercial" greeting cards when you can make a beautiful cuppa like this! Please note that this project is NOT intended for handmades! Run the cards through a shredder (gasp) for uniform strips. Remove the liner from one side of a piece of carpet tape and apply the strips in a pleasing pattern. When you have a piece large enough, remove the other liner to expose the second adhesive side and apply to a piece of card stock -- and then cut out a cup shape. The steam is random cuts from cardstock and the Embossing Arts flower has crystal laquer and was applied with a pop dot. This is a great project for traveling -- very few supplies are needed -- just a baggie of shredded cards, scissors and carpet tape. I had many an entertaining evening in my hotel room when I was working out of town with just these few items. Come on back -- there are more ideas to share!
