Top Tip Tuesday ~ No.4

I've come across a blog tonight called Top Tip Tuesday.
They're doing a giveaway of digital images and asking craft bloggers to share their recycling tips.

Here's a LO I made over a year ago. The large flower is made from material that covered a bed base I was throwing out. Can't show you a before, but I'm sure you all know
what a bed looks like LOL

As for the rest of the bed, my ex was rather clever and used some of the wood to make me a fab 12x12 paper storage. The only things I bought were the plastic pegs to sit the shelves on.

As a crafter, I hate throwing things out if I think they can be used somewhere, sometime. But as someone who hates hoarding and stuffed cupboards, drawers etc, this can be really difficult.
I have a lidded box full of 'bits' I've kept.
At least it looks tidy on the outside!! lol

Love, Sarah C xx
