Be Green...fun project!


Go Green

Hi everyone...Happy EARTH Day! It's a great day to have a little reminder to be a little more friendly to the environment by remembering to reuse, reinvent, and recycle! We have some great products to show your EARTH pride, and a simple and fun project to do.


Love Green

GREEN PROJECT:

Turn response envelopes into stickers

This craft is the perfect activity for a rainy day or after school playdate. Every time you receive a piece of junk mail, check to see if it has a response envelope. If an envelope is included, tuck it away in a drawer or storage box. That way, you'll have a good supply of envelopes on hand at a moment's notice.

You will need:

Response envelopes

Your favorite stamps

Markers, Colored Pencils, Ink Pads

Directions:

Cut the lick-and-stick strip of each envelope into 2-inch rectangles.

Decorate the non-adhesive side of the rectangle with your favorite stamps!

Place anywhere you would normally put stickers.


This is great fun...give it a try...and while you're at it...check out some of our other great GREEN sets from Unity and Clear & Simple...


Eco Chic


Owl Recycle

*BLOG CANDY ALERT...Join our following and tell me what you think of the green project, and you could win a GREEN ink pad and some GREEN at Heart Paper! I will announce the winner Thursday April 29th.

Keep those creative juices flowing...

  1. Happy Earth Day to each of YOU! The GREEN Project is Fabulous and I had started that a while ago!

    There is a gal I met a while back and she actually creates with them. Any way we can give back to "Mother Earth" is a must.

    Love the giveaway. I am already a Follower...who wouldn't be. Have a Grand Day!

  5. Love the card with the green leaf - it is amazing.

    I hadn't been saving my return envelopes, but I sure will now. With 6 grandchildren nearby, I know they will get used up! LOL.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

  15. Love the "green" project! It's so much fun to try to be more "green" every day in our crafting. I'm always amazed at how many things I find to re-use (just last night I rescued the packaging from my kids' Pokemon trading cards to use as shaker boxes). Keep up the great work inspiring us all!
