Anything But a Card Challenge 11 is "TIE IT UP". I have been doing a lot of greencrafting this month and doing some of my "BEEN WANTING" to do projects. This altered book spread is totally inspired from this challenge...and it's totally OUT-OF-THE-BOX. This is entirely made up of recycled dry cleaning tags. Yes! I'm a packrat of all sorts of interesting things that has potential artful re-use...and dry cleaning tags are some of my prized goodies. I have them in all colors and sizes.

I'll let you in on a little secret "there are different color tags for each day AND for different processes". I have a routine of the days I drop and pick up my husbands dress shirts and I would always get red or blue tags...I squealed with delight when I got an envy of all the days' tags {occasionally the girls at my dry cleaner give me a whole envelope of saved tags headed for the bin}. It's so interesting to learn about how the system works - a series of numbering and labeling to keep the clothes on their cleansing journey.

So I have woven a variety of these tags together and affixed them with staples. The few safety pins actually came on the tags {from shirts I've gotten back}. The orange ones are long appox. 4" long tags that say "PRESS ONLY". These tags are so colorful and each have their own journey. I'm happy to give them and artful place that makes me smile every time I look at them. Perhaps a perfect quote will come to me in my daily travels that will be perfect to go along with this creation.

Happy Creating!!!

Thanks for stopping by!!! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and have some time to create. A reminder... next weekend debuts a new ABAC Challenge - I'm sure you will all LOVE it.

  1. Too cool and what a great way to upcycle!

  2. I love this and it is the ultimate in green crafting! My DH always rolls his eyes at the various tags and bits of ribbon and string that I save, but they almost always end up with a good home!


I would love to hear your thoughts and comments...
