Now , I have had the recycling bug for many years. I taught children the importance of looking after our environment and felt that I had to practice what I preached. In the early days I am sure that I spent more money on petrol than I did on saving with my recycling. I approached my local councillor back then to complain about the lack of recyclying points locally only to be told that he agreed with me but that there was no plan to increase the service. Things have changed! How does this rambling relate to craft..............well I recently discovered the term "upcycling". Good old Google ...........upcycling maintains or improves the quality of the materials. So I think that this note holder fits into this category. I purchased the original from a pound shop and covered it with K and Co papers. I added the 3D flower and a sizzix die cut as embellishment.
