Pink Elephant Don't Throw That Away Challenge

Here's my take on the Pink Elephant Don't Throw That Away challenge. This week at my craft club we decided to see what we could make with old magazines. We rolled magazine strips which was quite time consuming. I came home with a bunch of rolled tubes but no project. I have seen many people make frames but I didn't want it to be just a frame so this project is a card that has cardstock flaps that allow it to stand even though its so top heavy. I figure this will make a great quick present because its a card and a gift all at the same time.

Speaking of presents earlier today I made a couple of little boxes for small presents. I think this one would be perfect for some candies for my mom this mother's day.


  1. Love the photo card frame Jess. You should make card of the week for sure!

  2. This frame is so COOL!!! I love how you used the rolled up magazine pages. It is so bright and earth friendly!!
