this heart trivet from better homes + gardens is a cinch to assemble. Twist three lengths of red jersey into one long braid, shape into a heart, then sew through the underside with a needle and thread. Braid enough white jersey to create a layer of white, and sew again. Create another red braid; continue wrapping it around the heart shape until the trivet has reached the desired size, then sew again.
to keep this along the recycled theme… use old tshirts or sheets… okay pillowcases (smaller) to craft this project
and pre-made printable stickers…
Print these on a full-sheet sticker page (dollarama) and then cut out to decorate cards, candy, and presents. Download the stickers here

just remember to keep the recycling bin nearby –instead of stuffing all this paper in a garbage bag. Don’t forget to recycle this holiday.

This is a great thing that im sure i have seen in a number of stores, and never really understood what it was.
embedded into the recycled paper are seeds! so you just lay it in the garden, cover with a wee bit of soil an water…. and there you have a beautiful memory of the card you received. i love this!
