Do you compost? Do you recycle your cans, plastics, cardboard? I'm sure in today's day and age we all pretty much recycle anything and everything possible. I for one can't stand taking something to the local landfill..so if it can be re-used...we do our best~
What about in your scrapbooking & card making...do you use recycled products? Here are a few ideas...
Bottle caps--> These can be heat embossed or covered in pattern paper. You can use a rubber mallet to flatten them so they aren't so bulky
Lonely earings and broken jewelry--> wouldn't these make amazing embellishments...and maybe even add some bling :)
Negatives from die cuts--> These can be saved and used as stencils for other projects like school projects. Trace the lines, then you can colour them, ink them , chalk them...ohhhh the possibilities are endless
What about empty coffee cans? These could be altered and a Crop-A-Dile Big Bite used to turn a coffee can into a ribbon holder. Punch the holes, add big eyelets and voila...You could even alter a few in the same colour scheme then put them on a shelf to hold other supplies~
Chipboard--> Save chipboard from everything...You could make mini books, or just cut out any shape imaginable.
Empty cereal boxes-->Once cut and altered can make awesome magazine holders.
What ideas do you have? What recycled items have you used in your projects?
Recycling and reusing household items is cost effective and environmentally friendly...who doesn't love that idea?
