I finally thought of an idea.  This is what I used:

Combined with a silk flower from my wedding, some ribbon left over from my wedding, and some white wrapping paper, I made this:

I’d love for you to share a link to something you have “upcycled” or made! 🙂

    That is cute! I’ve recycled old magazines and brochures into jewelry. I have actually been in the midst of getting that blog posted for a week now. I will have it posted by the end of the week, if you’d like to check it out! :o)
