Recycle your Magazines into Handmade Cards

I ran across a great post on Pintrest about how to recycle old magazines into hand-made paper. I won't repost the instructions because they are great in the original post-you can find them HERE.

I started off with seven magazines pages, a little gel medium and a roller. After the glue dried I added the stitching with my daughter's sewing machine (I don't sew). Then added a little gesso and my paper was done.

It turned out so awesome, I had to make something else out of it, so I decided a hand-made greeting card would be nice.

All the pieces I used were re-purposed.

I left the inside blank, but did add some color. Beats paying $5.99 for a card at the store-this one was basically FREE :)
