Just for Fun- recycling books or magazines


   I made this tag for Just for Fun where the challenge is to use recycled books or magazines in your project. Well they might have to disqualify me because my tag and butterflies are made with newspapers and glue and paint. What can I say. My newspapers were close to the magazines and I remembered how I use to make broaches by gluing layers of newsprint shapes together and then painting it. I made the tag the same way but used newspaper images for the top. Newsprint is similar to book paper and that might work the same.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!. Happy Thanksgiving to my fellow Canadians!
Thank you for looking.

  12. What a lovely bright tag you have made. Do you know, I never thought of newspaper not being allowed. I almost used newspaper for my entry - only thing that stopped me was getting the printing ink all over me. And I am supposed to know better! Thanks for sharing - Hugs, Neet x
