DIY stuffs always fascinate me. I am always mesmerized by the creative things people come up with the usual materials. Every time I see an interesting DIY I save it for future reference – for that day in future when I would actually try my hands on it. But then I never seem to have the time for them.
A few days back I was cleaning up my workstation at office. Unnecessary papers, pamphlets, folders and various other this-and-that which I keep thinking it would be of some use in the future (Yes, I am a hoarder!) were cluttering my storage space and that was the day when I decided to either get rid of them or actually find some use for them. Out of the many other things, I discovered a huge lot of wedding cards. I always feel bad to throwaway invitation cards, of wedding or any other occasion, the reason being the beautiful paper used & also the religious symbols in the cards. So that day when I discovered the stack of wedding cards in the mess, I decided to put them into some use, in other words recycle them. And this is when I remembered what Ashima, a fellow blogger cum pen-friend, had done with them sometime back (you can read her post here where along with wedding cards, she recycled a lot of other things).
Recycling turns things into other things, which is like magic! 🙂 ~Anonymous
I cut the wedding cards into various shapes and sizes and came up with gift tags, bookmarks, lil’ cards to carry a small message, etc. At the end of the task I was happy with the outcome of my DIY. Here is what I made –
With this start I am now motivated to take up my next DIY soon. Do you have any ideas for me? And what do you think of my 1st DIY?
