I made this valentine using cardboard that came in a clothing shipment box for an order I made online a couple months ago. I like to save boxes and pieces of cardboard for potential future projects like this one. So when thinking of the next valentine to make last night, I thought it would be great to use up what I had in recycled cardboard for the card. The polka dot paper is 100% recycled eco-friendly paper and the birds are made from x acto knifing on a strip of the cardboard. The only element of this card that was not made using recycled paper was the paper punched heart on the front and the inside. But, they were made using my left over scraps from other valentine’s projects so I feel like I was being less wasteful! The design comes from Martha Stewart’s love birds template which I fell in love with! I decided to make my own version on this recycled cardboard. 🙂 Hope you like this one!
