- Use a cardboard box to cut out cute embellishments like hearts, flowers, stars. 
- Flip through old magazines to find material for your creation (images, patterns, background color, etc).
- Use newspaper in your creation.

Monica, one of our DT members, created recycled magnets using old chipboard and old sheet music. This creates a really cute, vintage-y look!
Joan, another one of our DT members, used old cardboard from packaging for the back of her card. You'd never know but what a great way to use what you might throw in the trash to save some crafting cash!
