Hi everyone, Indah here with a Project Feature post! Using found objects are such a hot trend right now. In the card I posted below showcasing the beautiful Baker Mae you will find that I use 3 upcycled objects. Can you guess what they are?

The trims are actually from an old curtains I had, the red corrugated cardboard was from a souvenir holder and the kraft stars are from another thin box I had lying around. Using all these found objects are fun and frugal. You can make your own corrugated paper by ripping apart a thick box and strip the outer thin paper layer to expose the corrugated parts. When you’ve strip the outer layer you can color them using paint or mists. They also work well with dies, like what I did with mine. If you have cereal boxes, you can use the inside part like I did with mine here and die cut them.

So go look around the house and be creative! You might be surprised with the things you can upcycle. Have fun!
