Recycling / Reuse

In the proposal, the card was assembled from kraft paper, which gives a rustic style to the item, and the decoration was made with torn strips of newspaper, which form a Christmas tree on the cover of the item.
The star at the tip of the tree was made from a scrap of red fabric, but it could be made of any other material.
