Making Valentine Cards with...celery!

This year instead of going out and buying Valentine's day cards I decided to save money and use what I already had lying around the house to make my own. Here are a few things you might have around your house that you can pull out to use...
I also used old scrapbook paper that has just been sitting in my craft bin and pulled out some of my punches and stamps. Whatever you use, just have fun!

And leave it to Martha Stewart to get crafty using a vegetable!

Here's a peek at the other cards I've been making! I can't wait to send them out.
Check out my first Re-purposing project with Pipe Cleaners here.

Your version of celery stamping turned out great too! And way to repurpose... I'm always so tempted to buy new supplies every time I get a crafty itch, but I end up with sooooo many unused supplies.

I would of never thought to use celery to make a rose! Thats awesome. Loving the paint chip idea too. Were the love definitions part of your scrapbook paper or did you have to cut them out from somewhere?
