Trash To Treasure - Recycled Paper

I'm amazed at some of the things one can make by recycling paper.

This first one is a place mat made from recycled paper grocery bags. The folks at show us (step by step) how to make them.

This next idea is really clever and cute. It's from and they have made paper flowers out of sewing patterns. What a neat idea!

At 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.

Maybe these ideas will make us think before we take out the trash next time.

Have a great day!
