Since we have bought soil already many times for our plants and flowers, I had for a while now some of the sturdy plastic bags where the soil comes in and I was keeping them because I thought they could be great for a bag. This is my upcycling attempt from a soil bag to a drawstring gym bag:
I wanted to sort my rings and bracelets in a way I could easily see them and decide which one to wear, same with the necklaces and I tried to make a holder with kitchen towels tubes but didn’t work, wasn’t stable enough or I didn’t know how to make it right. Until…
In the past couple of weeks I had been looking for ways to use some scraps of fabric I had and a bunch of used and washed teabags.I decided to make some gifts for my penpals that would be completely made of repurposed materials. This was my attempt of a Did-It-Myself (DIM) and finally I came down to these:

The #Recycling Association named Pringles tubes and Lucozade Sport bottles in a list of products that pose the biggest challenges for #reuse. The greater the number of materials used in #packaging, the harder it is for recycling machines to separate them. Head to read the article: http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-39953209
Hi everybody! Thank you for passing by 🙂
This week I’ve been in a crafty mood. I made my own recycled paper (more like cardboard 😂) to send some Christmas handmade cards for my penpals and friends reusing scraps from materials I had (below each photo I leave you the link to where I got the idea from with the tutorial). I’m not the great crafter, but I like how rustic these cards look thanks to the materials I used (and my clumsiness 😛 ). Also, they are easy and may be a fun activity to make with kids.
