This first one is a place mat made from recycled paper grocery bags. The folks at www.favcrafts.com show us (step by step) how to make them.
This next idea is really clever and cute. It's from www.countryliving.com and they have made paper flowers out of sewing patterns. What a neat idea!
At www.alteredobsession.wordpress.com they show us how to make beads out of paper. I remember making these in 6th grade art class. We used comic strips.
Need a basket? How about making one from old magazine pages? The artful crafter shows us how. www.theartfulcrafter.com
Maybe these ideas will make us think before we take out the trash next time.
Have a great day!
