recycling projects for easter

I worked on two simple Easter projects for Going Green with Yolanda Green, a local TV show, and aired over the weekend. One is an Easter card and the other is a bird's nest (different than the one in my book). The materials are very easy to come by and you'll be done with the projects in no time at all (although the bird's nest does involve some extra drying time).

This card project can be used to create all types different types of looking cards simply by cutting out a different shape. How about a heart, a star or something more contemporary like a circle or square? I also think that a monochromatic version (all white fabric with white paper... ooohh) would look great too.

One small change to materials - I recommend you use a glue stick vs. craft or Elmer's glue simply because the card stock bends out of shape with the dampness of the glue. I don't know why I didn't think of that before shooting the segment... Hindsight is 20/20, isn't it?

Check out all the how-to in the video below. (Note - I don't think it's showing up on readers).



Please excuse the bare looking house. This was shot several weeks ago when we still hadn't quite moved everything back in from our whole remodeling ordeal. Come to think of it I'm still not done with all that!

You can download the template for the card here.

Happy Easter!
