For the background of the card I used a page from a book box Im making (coming soon).  The hearts are the skeleton of a sticker sheet (like whats left when you use all the stickers), the bow was on a gift my parents bought me years ago, and the Love was cut out of magazines. :)
For the inside of the card I used a piece of paper that had gotten water on it, but only on the top.  I used Elmers school glue because Im kind of in a love-hate relationship with glue sticks...(were not on speaking terms right now) so it turned out kind of wrinkly.  Eh, live and learn.
For the back I just used this black paper from a magazine ad.  Its also pretty wrinkly (even though I used the glue stick this time!), so I guess Ill have to get some other kinda glue that doesnt do that... any suggestions?

Hi, my name is stephiejill18, and I am an admitted packrat.  But my hording of random junk has made a recent pay-off! 

This is a card I made last night by recycling materials I salvaged.  I like to save boxes - cereal, pop tart, vanilla wafers, you name it - because they are wonderful to put gifts in!  However, the boxes pile up pretty fast... So I cut one up last night and fashioned it into a cute lil card!  Everything that I used to decorate the card was totally recycled too... it's the only way to go! ;)

Oh - and obviously, this idea can be used for so much more than cards. Decorating boxes, vases, binders, journals...etc.  Sky's the limit!
