Upcycling Challenge: T-Shirt as elements in a Scrapbook Page

I've been meaning to put together a scrapbook page of the first baseball game we took the boys too so I thought maybe I could upcycle one of the free t-shirts that we got at the game as free elements for the scrapbook page.

There is no real tutorial for this one.  Just cut up the t-shirt, assemble pictures and other momentos for the page, arrange and glue.

So the "final project" here is only partially finished because I don't have all the "baseball" elements I would have liked to put on the page. I am a HORRIBLE freehand artist but I think it makes the point that you can use the fabric graphics from an essentially throw-away tshirt as cute decorations on a scrapbook page.

This post is part of the Upcycled Crafting Challenge (#freefromtrash) hosted by Calley, The Eco Chic, and is part of a one month challenge to create from trash.  This challenge will hopefully open your eyes to the number of items that we still end up trashing every day that could be used by ourselves or our kids to create fun and useful items.  To find out more about the challenge and to see other projects click on over to Calley’s announcement post.


  1. I wanted to let you know that I featured your scrapbook page on my 10 Ways to Showcase Special T-Shirts post at http://thedomesticatedprincess.blogspot.com/2012/11/from-t-shirt-to-treasure-part-3.html.
