Clearly iStamp: Gift Card Grad Hi friends, before we get started with Tuesday's tutorial, I just wanted to remind you that we've got our monthly challenge going on right now. You have until June 3rd to join the fun. You can read all about it RIGHT HERE. Now for todays fun...Katie here and its Tuesday which means that I've got a tutorial for you. Today, I decided to box up my gift card. My first inclination is to go the traditional black and white since I don't actually know a person graduating this year, but I opted to go with my other inclination at the moment... Graduation is a big deal and its a reason to celebrate so I opted to create a design with these fun bright colors and using a new release stamp set called Air Flair. I then added THIS single graduation hat image and THIS graduation sentiment to create my tag. So how about the box? Here is a list of all the dimensions for the 3 main pieces of cardstock that you will need. I started with one color and stamped the balloon image. Next I added my balloon basket.

Food sold in recycled cardboard packaging 'poses risk' 8 March 2011Last updated at 06:52 By Nick Higham BBC News Major brands are taking action Leading food manufacturers are changing their packaging because of health concerns about boxes made from recycled cardboard, the BBC has learned. Researchers found toxic chemicals from recycled newspapers had contaminated food sold in many cardboard cartons. The chemicals, known as mineral oils, come from printing inks. Cereal firm Jordans has stopped using recycled cardboard and other firms are to ensure their recycled packaging does not contain any toxic oils. Kellogg's and Weetabix said they were taking steps to reduce the amount of mineral oil in their packaging. Exposure to mineral oils has been linked to inflammation of internal organs and cancer. Government scientists in Switzerland found quantities of mineral oils between 10 and 100 times above the agreed limit in foods like pasta, rice and cereals sold in cartons made from recycled cardboard.

Simon Warren: a pocket–size photography portfolio It's hard to find environmentally friendly printing solutions that also look fantastic, but why should you compromise? Photographer Simon Warren wanted to show off his work to the highest standard, without compromising his personal stance on carbon neutrality - so our 100% recycled Business Cards were the perfect solution.

Sustainable packaging Sustainable packaging is the development and use of packaging which results in improved sustainability. This involves increased use of life cycle inventory (LCI) and life cycle assessment (LCA)[2][3] to help guide the use of packaging which reduces the environmental impact and ecological footprint. It includes a look at the whole of the supply chain: from basic function, to marketing, and then through to end of life (LCA) and rebirth.[4] Additionally, an eco-cost to value ratio can be useful[5] The goals are to improve the long term viability and quality of life for humans and the longevity of natural ecosystems. Sustainable packaging must meet the functional and economic needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.[6] Sustainability is not necessarily an end state but is a continuing process of improvement.[7] Environmental marketing claims on packages need to be made (and read) with caution.

Make a gift bow from a magazine page In gift wrap emergencies when you've got the present but need some wrapping, here's an idea for turning a magazine page into a bow. There may be better ways to stick this thing together, but I used what I had on hand: staples and adhesive glue dots. Double stick tape or brads should work, too. Cut a magazine page lengthwise into 9 strips, 3/4" wide. Leave 3 of the strips full length. If you're using a magazine that's 10 1/2" tall, you'll end up with: 3 strips, 10 1/2" x 3/4" 3 strips, 9 1/2" x 3/4" 2 strips, 8 1/2" x 3/4" 1 strip, 3 1/2" x 3/4" Twist each strip to form a loop at both ends and staple it in the center. Layer the three longest pieces on top of each other, spacing them evenly and securing each with a glue dot. Use other papers, like a map of your city.
