Let's Recycle

The Blog Challenge Garden tag challenge is all about creating a tag using recycled materials ... at least 90% should be recycled. I LOVE such challenges. This is my recycle pool
A script page from a clothes catalogue, corrugated card from a parcel, a tag with some beads from a dress I bought last year, a cut-out circle from soem packaging, a little label which came with a stamp, some white twine from a Christmas tag and a wonderful little angel image which I found in the street - I don't know who lost it but I couldn't leave it, could I? It was a bit dirty when I found it but with a little bit of careful cleaning it looks wonderful now. And here is the tag
Have you spotted it? The only two new items I used are two new staples - haven't found a way of recycling those ones yet (lol) Petra.

(Gasp!) Now WHO would leave such a CUTE little angel on the street somewhere, I ASK YOU! (0; Well, it was a good thing you came to the rescue!... I really loved this swap, because it made us step away from our store-bought stash and goodies, to now really use our imaginations, and our JUNK, to still come up with something nice! A FUN challenge!... LOVE your beautiful tag, and hope your week ahead is a nice one! ~tina

Petra, your recycled items are wonderful for your tag. I love the little angel image and all the packaging materials you've used. No, I don't know any way to recycle staples!
