THE UNDISCIPLINED RANGE - RECYCLE AND RE-USE






Small greeting cards



Gift bags with button and fabric decoration

RECYCLE AND RE-USE

My new paper products designs make extensive use of all sorts of recycable materials. The fabric pieces used for these gift bags are cut-offs that I buy at different second hand shops in my city and from the SPCA.
All the buttons, wool and the ribbons come from there as well. I get a lot of donations now because people know that I create these products. They bring me shells and stones that have a special shape, old rusty nails, plastic lids, bottle lids, broken mirror pieces, glass pieces, drift wood pieces and many many more objects which I incorporate into my cards and gift bags.


The name " the undisciplined range " was chosen because I did not want perfection and structure. I was looking for a look that is more playful and unconventional.I am going to show some of my new products in this article.
The small gift bags you can see in the first picture are made from old shredded office paper that has been run though a whizzer- a big mixing machine - for several hours to make a smooth pulp. After the sheets have been casted they are pressed with a hydraulic press. The have a very smooth and glossy surface.
CARDS FOR EVERY OCCASION
I have created a great selection of funky and unqiue cards. I enjoy working with old rusty metal pieces, like nails or screws or broken of metal pieces. I have designed a beautiful card with a flower motif entirely made out of old rusty nails. Other designs are also available.
