St. Valentine's cards made of recycled materials



Do you know Charlie and Lola? I've always liked the stories and pictures by Lauren Child. I'm sure that you will recognize the hearts. We cut the little tear shaped pieces out of used packaging.

An upcycled t-shirt into last-minute napkins for Valentine's day... and so much more



Well, it's not that one would necessary need napkins for Valentine's day but the post title space is not enough to describe all possible applications of an upcycled t-shirt. I wanted to use the heart symbol and therefore made napkins for the whole family. The napkins can turn into bed linen for a doll, a cloth, wrapping fabric and so on. When Mathilda was a little girl (as if she was big now...) she loved to play with cloths - with my glass cleaning cloths to be precise - exercising her imagination in all possible ways. She never gave them back to me.

Why not try it out? Those last-minute napkins & co. are very easy to make.
