Card.Paper.Ribbon. Craft Leftovers’ First Ebook!

I am so excited that this great book has made its way into crafterdom! It’s chock full of great projects and techniques for using up leftovers from giving gifts.


We love to give gifts, no matter the occasion. We also love receiving them. What’s less lovely is the waste material left over from the average gift: crumpled wrapping paper, knotted, kinked ribbon, and used greeting cards. Card. Paper. Ribbon. offers up truly creative ways to make use of these gift-giving leftovers:

• Turn old greeting cards into gorgeous handmade paper, and then bind it into a beautiful fabric-covered journal. What a great way to make next year’s gifts from this year’s cards!

• Transform torn and crumpled gift wrap into an oilcloth-like fabric, and then use it to sew yourself a wallet or a handy zipper pouch. Make your accessories 100% yours!


• Save all that used curling ribbon and incorporate it into your knitting and crochet. It adds strength and sparkle to a crocheted market bag and a useful knitted basket.


Card. Paper. Ribbon. offers detailed step-by-step photo instructions for six gift wrap leftover crafts, along with lots of book, magazine, and web resources to help you look at all your leftover materials more creatively.

Card.Paper. Ribbon. is 63 pages, formatted to read easily on your computer screen. The ebook also comes with printer-friendly pages for each project, so you can print all the instructions without using too much printer ink.

  1. What a fantastic book! I just recently wrote a blog post (for my work’s blog) about this topic and I think it’s a great thing to get behind. We often are very thrifty and keen on recycling in other areas of our lives but this one tends to often slip through. Plus I love the idea of recycling gift wrapping and cards… in a crafty way! Thanks for the heads up – I’m off to buy this book!
