Recycle and Reuse!

Good morning and it's Friday, so time for a new challenge over at CraftyCatz! And we've got a great one this week chosen by our lovely DT member Naomi, who wants to see us crafters recycle or re-use something that we would have perhaps thrown away!  There are some fantastic - and very inventive! - samples from the DT over at the CraftyCatz challenge blog so do have a look for some inspiration.

I must confess that I had to think for a while before I came up with this one!

I decided to make a Christmas hanging decoration from an old cd!  
The image is from our sponsors this week, The Stamp Fairy, and I coloured it with promarkers

I've added some stickles and Flowersoft 'snow' and a few snowflakes from a Tonic punch.  The hanging thread is some bakers twine. 
Hope you like my 'recycling' idea! 
So have a look through some of the things you might throw away - and then see how you could revamp them on your craft table! 
Back soon, Kim x 

I'm entering this decoration into the following challenges:-
4CraftyChicks - ornaments
DRS Designs - snow fun
PixieDustStudio - winter holiday
The PaperShelter - Christmas is coming
