When The moxie Fab world said look around for household items to use on your projects ..I thought to myself ..been doing that for a long time now!...recyclying reusing and repurposing
..time to share
with all the junk mail I use for this project it's perfect for the Stampendous April Challenge- reuse recyle repurpose
Moxie Fab World- The Household Items Challenge.
Ever since I started paper making from my junk mail to create some beautiful textured plantable cards, I have used veggies likes beetroot , tea leaves and spices especially my all time favorite go to yellow color -- Turmeric.
So my household item is from my spice jar..Turmeric ..and if junk mail and flowers fro my garden count as household items then add them in..more the merrier!!
Yesterday I cast my first batch for this year. I do a lot of papermaking during spring and summer , with the flowers from my garden and usually add seeds to the paper while it is being cast so that the recipient of the card can plant it later and continue to enjoy the card in a different way.
I simply love the look and feel of handmade paper, the seeds add to the texture
Turmeric at play
This is the flower press , I use to press and dry my flowers ..beautifully handcrafted by my brother..decoupaged with some gingko and pansies by me.
Some previous samples ( notice the leaves and petals from my chrysanthemums ) and pictures on how I package them and insert a little note on how to use them further
Am sharing it on Do More With Less.. recycling with Sonia Venugopal...
