Make a Valentine card from recycled packaging.
Approximate Time: 30 minutes
- card stock
- scrapbook paper
- plastic packaging circle or bump
- 1 inch circle punch
This is so simple and so cute. Whenever you purchase an item with the plastic bump out type packaging, save it for a treat card.
Cut an opening in the paper about the size of your plastic packaging.
Pop in your plastic packaging (trimming may be needed).
Glue the edges, and let it dry.
Fill with small candies and then glue on a paper backing.
To hide the cutting line, I used 1 inch circles (from scrapbook paper), folded them in half and glued them around the edges where the paper and plastic meet.
