Reusing Plastic Pull Tabs

You know these things, you may see them every single day if you drink milk or juice from tetra pak. Since we landed to Heidelberg, I’ve been collecting these plastic pull tabs hoping one day to upcycle / repurpose them, but it has been difficult to find really cool ideas, but today I decided to put together the ones that are really worth sharing. The most common one you find plenty of tutorials about is the ring for kids, but here are others that may be of interest. Now I just have to choose one to start with on my own!
Hope you find them inspirational and if you have an idea of your own or you have seen something not showing here, let us know! Any contribution is welcome 🙂

Reusing Bubble Wrap

“Popping bubble wrap is exciting enough, so turning it into a fun, different and, sometimes, original activity, game or piece of art is simple. Once you have used it, or received it, avoid buying more. Or if you can, send it to a company in your city where you know it will be recycled. Besides reusing the bubble wrap for packaging, find a few ideas on how to repurpose it here.”
