    Default VC challenge #2- White Elephant

    It's amazing what you can do with all the old store bought cards, bits of ribbon from a present, leftover wrapping paper, gift bags, netting from fruit bags and other odds and ends that pile up and are just considered junk after they've served their purpose.

    Your challenge is to make a card or scrapbook page recycling old bits.
    For each scrapbook page you get 1 entry.
    For each card you get 2 entries.

    I'm switching it up and giving cards more points because with scrapbooking it's easier to add in a ticket from a show, etc and then do whatever else you were going to do. Cards, well, it's been my experience that you have to get a bit more creative as you have such a smaller space to work with. You can use the fronts of old store bought cards as long as you don't just cut off the front, paste it on a card, and call it done.

    Enter as many times as you like. Fabulous prize will be awarded.... and keeping with the theme, it will be a white elephant prize, but still VERY nice.

    Some of the best cards I've ever made were from bits from the front of store bought cards.

    My first entry for this one.

    They leftover "stuff" is the tulle on the top. I used that to make a tutu for a friend and had a ton leftover but not enough for another tutu.
